A great spot suitable for caravans right on a white sandy beach on the eastern side of Harvey Estuary.

There are basic facilities and flushing toilets. This spot is popular during the peak season (Easter long weekend especially) and day visitors chasing the blue swimmers.

I have heard they are planning on upgrading the campground (thanks to all the mining royalties, but don't know if it has happened yet.

Nearest dump point is at Williams Road, Pinjarra

Fishing

The most obvious target here is the Blue Swimmer crab. The water is wide, shallow and calm here so if you are really keen you could try my old crabbing method, a broom handle and a hessian sack. Just wade around in the water till you spot one, pin him down with the broom handle, grab his back leg and chuck him in the sack. It is very efficient, lots of fun and doesn't require any bait...

Note: I have had comments that the above method may be outside the permitted methods for catching Blue Swimmer Crabs. See http://www.fish.wa.gov.au/Species/Blue-Swimmer-Crabs/Pages/Blue-Swimmer-Crab-Recreational-Fishing.aspx for more information on permitted methods and seasons.
