Carnarvon Region

Carnarvon Region caravan, camping and visitor information.

The Carnarvon region is in the Coral Coast area of Western Australia and covers 46 664 square kilometres. It stretches from the locality of Lyndon in the north to the locality of Wooramel in the south. Positioned between Shark Bay and the Ningaloo World Heritage areas it includes the major towns of Carnarvon and Coral Bay. There are many smaller towns and localities both on the coast and inland to explore.

The Traditional Owners of the region are the Aboriginal Inggarda, Baiyunga, Thalanji, Malgana and Thudgarri Peoples.

Home to an impressive selection of attractions and experiences, the natural resources, flora, fauna and landscape of this region offer many unique and beautiful areas to enjoy. Experience the thrill of swimming with whale sharks, manta rays and humpback whales. Head inland and discover the world’s biggest rock, the real Aussie outback and authentic homesteads. Visit the Kennedy Range National Park and find red sand dunes formed 20,000 years ago balanced against mixed shrubland and spinifex grasslands.

Along with the Tourist and Caravan Parks in major towns of the Carnarvon region there are many picturesque places where you can camp. These include wilderness areas such as the The Blowholes and New Beach campgrounds as well as Farm and Station Stays.

Above all, the Carnarvon region offers unspoiled natural features and exciting experiences on both land and sea. This, along with near perfect weather, makes it a fantastic destination all year round.

Please note:

There are no free camping areas in the Shire of Carnarvon. It is an offence to camp anywhere other than a registered Caravan Park, designated campground or nature based camping area.
