Description

Located in Karara Rangeland Park, John Forrest Lookout, offers outstanding views of the park. Karara Rangeland Park comprises six former pastoral stations and hosts a diversity of landscapes, habitats and inhabitants. Camping is available however there are no facilities. Camping fees apply for all overnight stays within Karara Rangeland Park. They can be paid online at Park Stay WA, or by contacting the Parks and Wildlife Service in Geraldton on 9964 0901. One booking is valid for all camping areas in the park. Camp at any camping area for any night of your booking. Moving between camping areas is permitted. Although campfires are permitted in Karara Rangeland Park, many negative impacts can be avoided by using fuel stoves instead. If having campfires, please bring your own firewood, keep fires small and use fireplaces where provided. Collecting firewood removes essential habitats used by a host of native flora and fauna, including endangered species. Insects, reptiles and other small animals lose their homes when wood is removed. Animals are displaced, nutrient recycling is disrupted and the balance of ecosystems is disturbed. Generators are permitted between 8am and 9pm. 4WD is required to access this site. Roads in the park are unsealed. The park is remote and has no drinking water or supplies. Bring everything you need. Maximum stay in any park: 14 nights if any night is during Western Australia public school holidays, 28 nights at any other time. Pets are not permitted. Mobile phone coverage varies from poor to non-existent.

Great spot, and considering how busy some of the camping areas are up here this wildflower season, we are only one of three vans in this huge area to choose from. Very under utilised.
