This campsite is located in Karlamilyi National Park
Karlamilyi National Park is a beautiful and haunting place, rich in history and culture. This ancient land is one of the few areas in Australia that remains rarely visited. Its secrets are known only to a few hardy travellers, scientists, researchers and explorers, and, of course, the traditional Aboriginal groups who have lived there for tens of thousands of years. Karlamilyi National Park is the largest national park in WA and one of the largest in the world. As well as being vast, it is also one of the most remote places in the world, and features rugged wilderness and stunning natural beauty. Formerly known as Rudall River, it is the perfect place to experience the true isolation of the outback, but only for well-equipped, self-sufficient campers. You need a permit from the DEC in Karratha to gain access to the park’s eastern section.
