Woodman Point Recreation Camp

Woodman Point provides a historic coastal location south of Fremantle in unique heritage accommodation.

Woodman Point Recreation Camp is popular with a wide variety of groups. Its proximity to Fremantle, competitive pricing, idyllic beach location and the range of adventure programs in The Cube ensure that Woodman Point is unique in many ways. Staff pride themselves on client-focussed service and are intent on providing high-level, cost-effective recreation programs to a wide range of groups, including special needs organisations.

The site has significant historical and cultural importance. The site was originally as a quarantine station with the first buildings constructed in 1886 and more added in 1901. These buildings have been recently renovated. In contrast to the original buildings, The Cube is a modern, multi-purpose adventure training facility.

Whether it is the conquest of the first abseil, the team success at crossing the ‘acid river’ or the wonderful feeling of sharing a camp-fire with new friends, your camp at Woodman Point will be a rewarding experience.

Department of Education and Training (DET)  guidelines

Most Adventure Recreation Programs at Woodman Point meet or exceed the Department of Education guidelines for outdoor pursuits. In consideration of specific environments at the site, variations from these guidelines exist to increase safety. 

Beach safety

Woodman Point management strongly recommends that all groups intending to use the beach arrange for qualified life savers through camp staff for water safety. All groups should check with their governing bodies to make sure that their water safety is in accordance with official procedures.

Inclusivity

Woodman Point Camp strives to be inclusive through its programs and facilities. All accommodation and dining areas, excluding Jervoise dormitory and Tuart Cottage, provide wheelchair access, including ablutions suitable for wheelchair use. Any group requiring special requirements need to arrange a site tour before booking the facility to ensure the site is suitable. This can be arranged through the camp. With advance notice, many of our programs can also be modified to include all participants.
