Recreation camps

The Department of Sport and Recreation provides five fantastic recreational camps situated around greater Perth and regionally.

The camps experience

Our camps are more than a physical site available for group bookings. They are special places where Western Australians of all ages can participate in unique outdoor activities. Whether it's conquering that first abseil, team success at crossing the ‘acid river’ or the wonderful feeling of sharing a campfire with new friends, your camp experience will be a rewarding one.

Metropolitan camps

Our four metropolitan camps each offer unique recreation and accommodation. From the tranquil bush setting at Bickley to our coastal camps at Woodman Point and Ern Halliday, you will find the perfect location for your school, community or corporate group.

Regional camp

Our regional camp offers many opportunities to explore Albany and the Great Southern. Situated on the harbour, this historic location is fast becoming a popular regional destination.
