Camping at Honeymoon Pool- Directions
Camping Near Perth Australia
Are you wanting to go camping somewhere peaceful relaxing & not too expensive yet not travel too far from Perth Australia ?
We found an amazing camping spot by accident on the way back from a few days camping at Walpole down south .
As we traveled Back north a lot of other places were busy & we even tried in Busselton .
After leaving there we came across a sign saying Wellington dam so in a split second decision we took the turn & I was so glad we did !
Honeymoon Pool is a fantastic swimming spot along the Collie River near Wellington Dam & a short drive from Collie where you can do your shopping .
It is only for camping with your tent amongst the shade of the trees & as well as the bbq's there are flush toilets as well as water available.
When we arrived there the camping spots were full so we had a swim & drove away to sleep the night in the car .
Early morning we decided to cook breakfast back at honeymoon pool & while there a lady informed us that had just become available so we decided to stay a few days
It is ideal for unwinding from city stress , swimming and bush walking.
To get to Honeymoon Pool it is about 2 and a half hours using the Kwinana Freeway and South Western Hwy approx 190 k's . Google maps will give you the directions when you are ready to go .
It costs $7 per adult per night and $5 for Seniors.

You can also go canoeing down rapids or go bike riding nearby.
