Karda Campround Have your say

TWO new campgrounds have opened in the heart of wildflower country along WA's Turquoise Coast.

Managed by the Parks and Wildlife Service at the Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions, the new facilities will help meet the growing demand for nature-based tourism in the region.

Karda Campground is located 20km east of Jurien Bay adjacent to Lesueur National Park and includes 31 campsites suitable for all types of camping accommodation, including caravans.

Each campsite has a picnic table and firepit, and there is a toilet at each of the two camping areas. Wanagarren Campground is situated alongside the pristine waters of Jurien Bay Marine Park between Wedge and Grey reserves.

There are 15 campsites for standard, rooftop and awning tents and it is suitable for campers who are completely self-sufficient.

Environment Minister Stephen Dawson said the area was becoming more popular due to its pristine waters, stunning wildflowers and small picturesque towns, as well as improved access via the Indian Ocean Drive.

"I am proud that we are continuing to open new campgrounds and provide recreational opportunities for visitors and locals, while rolling out this new package of tourism investments to safeguard our future as a national and international tourism destination," he added.

As part of the WA Recovery Plan, the state government has announced a $150 million tourism package investment to support Western Australia's tourism sector as it responds to the impacts of the coronavirus pandemic.
