Situated about 100km north of Perth is the little township of Guilderton, part of the very popular Moore River area. Highly regarded by happy campers, it is a magic spot where the river opens out to the ocean providing a great spot for family fun.
Guilderton is close enough to be a fun day trip, and a great spot for a camping weekend away without spending hours in the car. The river is calm and you can enjoy the water with kayak or stand-up paddle board hire or take a boat cruise further up to check out a massive water slide. Bordered by the Indian Ocean, Guilderton also provides a welcome change from the busy crowds you get at suburban beaches.



We recently spent a weekend at the Guilderton Caravan Park, with a group of friends, all with kids under the age of 4. The camp ground itself is very well appointed with a camp kitchen that includes gas hobs, a double fridge, sinks, toasters and microwaves, a wonderful ablutions block (including access to a family shower room for an additional fee) and lots of trees. It is a short walk to the river or sneak over the hill at the rear of the camp ground to get access to the beach. They also offer a late check out (at 1pm) for an extra $10, something I wish we had taken advantage of to enjoy the beach just a little longer.



Just note that the fish and chips at the local store stops serving at 6pm so if you are planning on getting up there on a Friday evening after work, get your orders in by 5.45pm or make sure you bring your own dinner. The general store is limited but has necessities (bread, milk, plastic wrap, paper towel, beach toys). It can also get quite windy and cool in the evenings so if you are camping come prepared for the cool change. Happy Camping!
