Herron Point

Herron Point

Herron Point Campground is just one-hour south of Perth and only a 15-minute drive to the town of Pinjarra. 

Enjoy stunning sunsets overlooking the estuary and early morning wake up calls of the native birds. Launch your small boat on the public boat ramp, enjoy fishing, crabbing and relaxing walks along the estuary shoreline listening to the sounds of the Australian bush whilst soaking in the serenity of these fragile and important wetlands.

Campers are required to bring their own drinking water and be self-sufficient as the campground is not connected to mains water or electricity. Most water is trucked into the campground, therefore, visitors are requested to please only use the basins for handwashing.

While toilets are provided on site, there are no shower facilities provided. It is necessary to bring your own water for drinking, dishwashing and other sanitary needs. Solar power provides lighting to the toilets overnight. It is also highly recommended to bring insect repellent for mosquitos.

Online booking for Herron Point Campground is now required.
