Lucky Bay Kalbarri

Lucky Bay Kalbarri


Lucky Bay Kalbarri is one of my favorite places to spend a weekend. Its about a 5.5 hour drive north of Perth, just south of Kalbarri. The location is great fun for snorkeling, boating, jet skiing, motorbike riding, four wheel driving, kite surfing, water skiing, camping and relaxing. There aren’t many places where you can do that, and there are no camping fee’s! If you haven’t been to Lucky Bay, now is your chance!

    I’ve got a 07 Navara, pretty much stock, I put some rubber on it and a snorkel but my concern is that it’s got the standard suspension and a decent bar on the front which has dragged it down a couple of inches. I’ll be towing a bike trailer with 3 bikes on it with our camping gear on the car, will i find any issues getting into Lucky Bay? I’ve not been up that way before but have read pleanty and it looks amazing! I’ve got a decent compressor so it’s no dramas with tyre pressures.
    Any thought’s would be appreciated

    Hi Ben,

    The Navara’s are a great vehicle, and with the right tyre pressures you won’t have any issues. Remember to let the trailer tyres down too, and you will walk in and out. I saw a WRX drive in and out, unassisted one time we were up there!

    It is an incredible place!

    Beautiful, thanks for the info Aaron, cheers 🙂 looking forward to it, and if we can’t really ride, well then it’ll just have to be more fishing!

    G’day Ben,

    There is plenty of coastline to fish and enjoy!

    Is camping free ir does it need to be paid for

  • Aaron Schubert December 4, 2018, 7:37 PM

    Hi Tarlisha,

    It was free many years ago, but its now a paid camp ground. It’s low cost though – probably around $10 per person per night

    any toilet facilities nearby?

  • Aaron Schubert March 25, 2019, 7:08 PM

    Hey James,

    Yep, on your way in. If you don’t have a portable toilet then you need to stay near them. This camp site has had a major overhaul, and is now run by the DBCA. Still a magic spot.

    Update 🙂 Head roughly 18K’s north of Port Gregory, Turn left onto Balline Road.

    Follow it for around 4 K’s and then you will see the Rangers office. Its $15 Per Vehicle per night.

    Make sure you bring a Chemical Toilet if you want to camp further than the allocated camp grounds.

    Magical Place !

    Hi there,

    We have an Jayco Expanda outback poptop
    – will we have any issues getting this into lucky bay or is it mainly tents and camper trailers ?

    Thanks !

    Hi Ellise,

    You’ll be fine, as long as you have a 4WD


  • Aaron Schubert April 29, 2019, 5:59 PM

    Cheers for the update Steve
