Camping in Cape Conran Coastal Park

The Banksia Bluff Campground

Why it passes muster: 

  • It’s camper van friendly
  • It is in a place of great beauty just off the beach


  • Flush toilets
  • Cold outdoor showers
  • Bore water
  • Fire places
  • Picnic tables

What makes it special

With 135 sites spread over 1 km, this campground is spacious. The sites are set in natural bushland with direct access via sandy forest tracks to the beach. Dogs are welcome but must be on a leash at all times. This place doesn’t have the full range of facilities that some caravan parks have. It is for those who like to immerse themselves in natural beauty and fall asleep to the crashing off waves under a canopy of stars.

Rates: $35 – $39

Tips: Cape Conran Coastal Park is so popular in high season they draw ballots for sites over Christmas and you need to book a year in advance for the Easter long weekend. Outside of peak season, no bookings are required.

Lots of space at Cape Conran campsite.

We have met so many amazing fellow travellers and not only tasted, but eaten #vanlife whole. This is the best end to this chapter we could have imagined.” Mitch Butler on Instagram.
