What Activities to Do and Where to Go in WA During Winter

Check out our Top 5 WA spots to visit and take your caravan this winter 2022.

Winter is a great time to hit the road and enjoy the travelling, camping and tourism opportunities Western Australia affords. Choose your preferred pastimes, and enjoy the journey.

As providers of exploration caravan hire in WA, the Allways Caravan team are often asked for recommendations on regions and locales worth visiting. In this wonderful state, you’re spoilt for choice.

 

Margaret River

One of the most well-known of Western Australia’s holiday opportunities, the Margaret River region is famous for stellar alcohol, food and surf. Yes, a popular trifecta for a well-earned break.

Margaret River camping and caravanning opportunities are rife. Aside from wineries, breweries, and beaches, visit phenomena like Ngilgi Cave, and explore the traditional land of the Wadandi People.

You’re also only an hour and a half drive from Manjimup. Truffle season in WA runs June to September, making this a must-see for foodies—especially if the Southern Forests Wine Trail appeals.

 

Broome

Loathe the winter cold? Many of West Australia’s caravan enthusiasts head to Broome. The region’s warmer climes are a drawcard, and there are many caravan site and camping sites to choose from.

Cable Beach is a famous location in Yawuru country. Broome boasts fantastic seafood restaurants, and offers a lot of water-based activities. Or is a camel ride on the beach more your style?

The stunning Dampier Peninsula is often explored along with Broome. Be aware, weather may limit some access. A truly breathtaking remote location, take care to plan a caravan-friendly route.

 

Kimberleys

If visiting Broome, consider heading further into the Kimberleys. Lovers of outback exploration can map a route using Caravan and Campground sites. April to October is the Gibb River Road window.

The Coral Coast is a great coastline road trip, partly through the Kimberley region. Visit world heritage listed Bungle Bungle Range in Purnululu National Park. Jaru and Kija people are traditional owners. 

And while Karijini National Park is part of the Pilbarra, it’s the state’s second largest national park—traditional home of the Banyjima, Kurrama and Innawonga people—and a must-see if you’re nearby.

 

Walpole

Nature lovers cannot go past Walpole, home to the Valley of the Giants Tree Top Walk. Walpole is in the Wagyl Kaip and Southern Noongar region, and renowned for incredible biodiversity.

The Walpole-Nornalup National Park and other parks nearby are incredible. Walpole is also popular with boating, fishing and surfing devotees, so camping and caravanning opportunities are rife. 

Walpole is only a 45 minute drive away from the popular town of Denmark. You can head on over to visit the famous beaches, and enjoy the laidback lifestyle. The Denmark Visitor Centre is a helpful tool.

 

Goldfields

Longstanding favourites for West Australian caravan and camping regulars are the Goldfields and Wheatbelt. Later in the season you’re likely to catch sight of the beautiful flora and fauna.

If you want to stay close to popular towns, Kalgoorlie and Esperance offer great camping and caravanning opportunities, perfect for bushwalking fans. Esperance is also renowned for fishing.

The Goldfields are a road-trip friendly region, with a number of popular trails to explore. Visit the Museum of the Goldfields. Learn about the local indigenous culture, with NAIDOC celebrations in July.
