It had been 7 years since last visiting Walpole, and both Sarah and I missed it badly. Walpole’s such a tranquil and beautiful area, and we both have very fond memories of it. There’s something about the trees, and the amazing water/beach around where the ocean and inlet meet that is truly magic.
A few months back, we rushed into booking a few remaining camp sites at the Coalmine Beach Caravan Park over Easter. Normally we’d much rather stay out of a caravan park, but when its Easter time, you have limited annual leave and a little baby the last thing we wanted to do was drive around trying to find somewhere to camp.

Lots of these cheeky birds hang around too
Whilst other parts of WA had total fire bans, we were good to go!
