Amazing place and Bernadette is a great host. The path is where the yellow ribbon is on the tree. This is a unique step into a world that a lot people would not be privy too 😊🙏 enjoy 😉 yarning with Dampier around the fire and escape the hustle and bustle of town life.

Unfortunately the camping spot was not quiet as we were led to believe on the Hipcamp description. Bernadette is lovely and her house position on the coast is awesome. The camping spot, however, was in her small backyard under the clothesline. Not quite the privacy or serenity we expected so we chose not to stay. There certainly is not room for 4 camping spots for 6 people each.

As soon as we arrived we felt welcomed and like we had arrived somewhere special. The landscape was breathtaking and we had the beach more or less to ourselves. We sat around the fire at night and Bernadette cooked us turtle stew and damper and we had a yarn and a sing and she told our kids some of the local stories. Don’t expect your usual campsite but if you’re keen to experience first hand what it’s like to live in a beautiful First Nations community, and maybe learn a thing or two about the local culture and history, this place is for you. We can’t wait to get back there!

Beautiful! Bernadette and her daughter Kelly were loverly hosts and provided a guided orientation to their backyard....the beach.
We were the only guest this weekend.....I not sure how the camp sites would work out for the 3 advertised sites. Only downer was the generator was left running (Im sure unintentional) till it ran out of fuel and 1am...it wasn't far from our site. Apart from that, highly recommended for a dry season beach camp.

Thanks Max for your response. Thank you also for reminding me about the generator. I will be mindful of this in the future. Thank you for choosing to stay at my Paradise.
