Yalgorup National Park – Martins Tank

 

Yalgorup National Park – Martins Tank

 

Project status: Completed

 

More campers can now stay at Yalgorup National Park as a result of upgrades to Martins Tank Campground.

The campground's expansion and upgrades were made possible through $1.3 million of Royalties for Regions funding, along with $70,000 from the Department of Parks and Wildlife.

The campground has been redesigned and expanded to include the following facilities: 

  • 30 individual campsites catering for people with tents, caravans, camper trailers or campervans
  • Four 'open' camping areas, each of which can accommodate four tents and have parking for large vehicles
  • Kitchen with gas barbeques, a gas burner for cooking pots, dishwashing sinks, food preparation surfaces
  • Two communal fire pits
  • Open-air gas barbeques
  • Picnic tables and benches
  • Additional pathways
     

The improved camping facilities means more families and visitors will be able to experience the park's natural beauty, particularly the internationally recognised Peel-Yalgorup Ramsar wetland.

The upgrades were part of the State Government's $20 million Conservation Parks Infrastructure and Roads initiative to improve opportunities for people to enjoy affordable accommodation when visiting Western Australia's national parks.
