๐ŸŒŠ๐Ÿ’ฆ WARROORA STATION, WESTERN AUSTRALIA ๐Ÿ’ฆ๐ŸŒŠ

We have just spent the last two and a half weeks at Warroora Station (pronounced Warra), situated on the Ningaloo Reef. It was awesome! ๐Ÿ™Œ We had 11 nights at 14 Mile Beach, followed by 6 nights at Steven’s Camp.

๐Ÿ’ฒA week on a beachfront campsite here will only set you back $50 per adult๐Ÿ‘Œ Or if you are here for a shorter stay, it’s $10 pp/pn.

โ„นHere is some info on the station, for those who want to know more:

๐Ÿšซ๐Ÿšป There are no toilet facilities. You must bring your own chemical toilet or you can hire one at the Homestead or 14 Mile Campsite for $10 per day/$50 per week. There is a dump point at the rubbish tip about 5 mins drive from 14 Mile. There is also one down the Southern end of the station.

๐Ÿšฎ The rubbish tip is well organised and also collects cans for RFDS

๐Ÿ”ฅ Bring in all of your own wood for fires or purchase some from the caretakers/homestead. Campfires allowed May through October.

โœ…๐Ÿถ Pet friendly, but there is 1080 on the property

โœ– There is no drinking/bore water available at 14 Mile so you must bring in everything that you need. There is limited potable water and artesian water showers available for a small fee at the Homestead. They also sell cold drinks and ice creams ๐Ÿฆ๐Ÿฅƒ

๐Ÿ›’ Coral Bay is only a 20 minute drive away (from 14 Mile). Although expensive, there is lots available there to stock up on – fuel, groceries, bakery, cafes etc. We suggest stocking up before heading to the area.

๐ŸŒฌ At this time of the year it’s pretty windy! Some days have been good, others have been crazy windy. There is camping available behind the dunes, which is a little more protected. We ended up moving from 14 Mile to Steven’s to escape the wind a bit!

๐Ÿš There are multiple beaches to explore along the station, with crystal clear water and snorkelling at most spots.

๐ŸŸ๐Ÿฆˆ The boys caught plenty of fish straight in front of the camps at 14 Mile and Steven’s ๐Ÿ™Œ Threadfin salmon, tailor, golden trevally and dart. There were also heaps of sharks sneaking around eating their bait.

Overall, it was an awesome stay at Warroora. If you can’t already tell by the multiple pictures we’ve posted, we LOVED it ๐Ÿ’œ Make sure that you don’t just stay at 14 Mile and go explore the rest of the station, even if only on a day trip – so many hidden treasures waiting to be discovered!
