Free Camping – Western Australia – Robe River

Robe River is 1,374 km North from Perth on the North West Coastal Highway. This is another place to camp after a long drive in the North West of Australia. Like with any free camp up North, it is best to get there before lunch to get a good spot.  Enjoy relaxing beside the river and do spot of fishing, although I hope the fish are biting more than when we stopped there.

Beautiful sunsets at  Robe River

I saw someone swimming here although a crocodile was spotted further down the river so, its best to give that a miss. Take a stroll along the river bank and capture images of beautiful birds.
