Camping at Fowlers Bay
interesting. In many ways it was very similar to the journey across the
Nullabor Plain with long straight plains and scrub covered sand landscape.
From Kalbarri to the Shark Bay township of Denham there are no towns, only
two roadhouses where fuel is sold and the occasional sign of a station.
Soon after our experience with the flies at Shell Beach we decided to call
it a day. World Heritage Drive leads into Denham and close to the town
there are four camping areas which are provided free and campers can stay
for twenty four hours if they have a permit. We decided to stop at one of
these overnight before going into Denham on ANZAC day. We chose Fowlers
Bay. There were already about six groups of campers set up when we arrived.
We often find that in free camping areas people are very friendly and soon
everyone was chatting. This was hard for us as we were still struggling
with the flies - those nets are really necessary.
The bay is really lovely and after dark the flies settled and it was really
pleasant. This is a world heritage park and it is great that camping is
