Free Camping – Western Australia – Mary Pool

Mary Pool is a great overnight camping spot to stay for one night or several.  Enjoy great walks and capture photos of some beautiful birds.  When visiting up North you have to be aware of the change in weather.  These areas can flood without much warning.  We were lucky on our last visit, as it flooded a couple of weeks before we arrived.  A helicopter flew in to warn people of an impending flood.

They had the choice of leaving or staying, many left and others stayed.  One particular motorbike rider decided to leave although he must have left it a bit late as he had to be rescued, although his bike was worse off.

When we left after a few nights stop, the water had almost disappeared. Just a trickle across the water crossing.

One time when we stopped there were over one hundred caravans, tents, and mobile homes camped here.  It is a great place to relax and enjoy nice walks.

Lovely campsite with loads of space to spread out

 

While enjoying your walk, don’t forget to take the camera and capture many photos of the beautiful birds.

We saw this Beautiful Great Bower bird eating a banana skin in the tree.
