This book will prove invaluable for people who love camping and caravanning. For less than the price of an overnight stay in a caravan park, it provides detailed information on over 250 free, or very low cost, camping, picnic and rest areas, ranging from authorised camping grounds with facilities, through to small secluded sites in natural bush settings.

All sites have easy to follow 2WD or 4WD trip notes and mud maps, as well as information on site and surrounding areas. Advice is also given on facilities provided, the type of camping available, fees charged, the best time to visit and whether pets are allowed.

The guide covers the whole southern section of the State, from as far north as Kalbarri and Mt Magnet, south to the coast, and east along the Eyre Highway to the Western Australian border. Mud maps show the location of all sites, making it a simple matter to plan that priceless camp site or rest area.

This book is written for all those who, like us, enjoy the great Australian pastime of "camping out".

The sequence of locations follows a route from Norseman south to Esperance and then north to Perth, either along the coast or inland.

The opportunity to go free-camping in one's own country is, we believe, the birthright of every Australian. It is only by making use of these areas and caring for them that we can ensure this pastime will be available for the next generation to enjoy.

One of the pleasures of free-camping is being able to take your "best friend" on holidays with you. If you have a dog or cat, or any other pet, you will share in the frustration we always experience when we see yet another part of our country made "out of bounds" for the family who likes to holiday with their pets. Every camping spot featured in this guide is open to pets. If you are a family who takes their pet on holidays, please ensure your pet is always well controlled.

This book is written for all those who, like us, enjoy the great Australian pastime of "camping out".

We travelled north along the coast and came back south through the inland route, so if you are travelling the same way you will find the guide very easy to follow. If travelling north through the inland route, simply work your way backwards through the guide. If you have come across from the Northern Territory and are travelling south from the top, refer to the composite maps to work your way down to Perth.

From August through to November, the wildflowers provide a variety of colourful scenery throughout the north. The roadsides are decorated with yellows, reds and pinks all the way north to the Pilbara, and there are endless carpets of everlastings visible from Wubin, north to Paynes Find and west to the coast. The wildflowers make a springtime visit to the north of W.A. truly unforgettable. If you can't make it in the spring, the warm temperatures of autumn and winter days in the north have an appeal of their own.
