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.
