Cliff Head is a free nature-based campsite located on the Indian Ocean Road between Leeman and Dongara.

Recently re-vamped, these sites are beautifully located among limestone cliffs and the turquoise water that this coastline is noted for.

There are three camping sections – Cliff Head North, South and Central. Campers can stay for three nights within a 28-day period at no charge.

Cliff Head Central is the largest of the three sites and includes eco toilets, undercover area with sink, benches and tables and a communal fire place.

Cliff Head South is the smallest of the three sites and located inside a lovely sheltered cove. The site has eco toilets but no other facilities.

The beaches can get quite weedy, depending on the season and conditions. However, in nice weather, like I had here, it’s a great place to spend a day or two. Dogs are welcome too.

Access to the site is via a gravel road from the Indian Ocean Drive. The sites can be accessed by two wheel drives and are suitable for large caravans.

The Shire of Irwin has done a fantastic job in providing these sites for free. Please support them by buying locally.

  1. Great location to spend a couple of days. However, if you’re allergic to bees then steer clear! Two seperate camp sites and dpzens of them around, later found out there’s a beekeepers reserve not far away.
