Online bookings to secure campsites in popular South West national parks and conservation reserves will become effective from Monday, 1 July. 

Bookings and payment can be made online up to 180 days in advance via the Park Stay WA booking system for the following sites:

  • Sues Bridge Campground – Blackwood River National Park 
  • Warner Glen (Chapman Pool) Campground – Blackwood River National Park 
  • Canebrake Pool Campground – Rapids Conservation Park
  • Wrights Bridge Campground – Powlalup Nature Reserve 
  • Barrabup Pool Campground – St John Brook Conservation Park 
  • Workmans Pool Campground – St John Brook Conservation Park
  • Boranup Campground – Leeuwin-Naturaliste National Park 
  • Point Road Campground – Leeuwin Naturaliste National Park

DBCA Assistant Director of Visitor Services Rod Annear said Park Stay WA enables people to cancel a booking up to one day before arrival if needed, so the campsite can be made available to another camper.  

“The changes are about fairness, flexibility and assurance of accommodation on arrival,” Rod said.  

“Given the popularity of the South West as a holiday destination, people who can’t travel spontaneously due to work, family or other commitments, need the security of being able to book campsites in advance to guarantee accommodation.”

For campers who prefer spontaneity, last-minute bookings may still be available in some of the most popular sites on the day of their intended stay.  

Over the last two months DBCA staff have been liaising with local stakeholders and installing signage across the eight campsites where the changes are being implemented.    

“Currently, sites in 69 campgrounds across the State can be booked through Park Stay WA and DBCA is continually improving the online booking experience for our customers,” Rod said.
