Waterhouse Point camping area
At the remote northern tip of this conservation area, there are campsites scattered among scrub next to sandy tracks. Head out to the magnificently scenic Waterhouse Point via a track off Homestead Rd, 1.4 km east of the Herbies Landing turn-off. About 1 km in, the track splits; camping is in this area as well as along a track heading east. A 4WD boat-launching site is nearby. Bring drinking water and firewood.

This campsite is located in Waterhouse Conservation Area
This 25 km stretch of dune-backed beach and coastal lagoons is reached from the B82 via Blackmans Lagoon and Homestead rds. A network of rough and sandy tracks – some only passable with a 4WD vehicle – leads to beach launching sites, sheltered camping areas and rocky headlands. Campers can stay for up to 4 weeks and need to be self-sufficient for water, firewood and food; they should also bring a portable toilet. There are no dump sites here.
