    Lucky Bay Campground Stage Two completed

    6/09/2018 2:00 PM
    • Lucky Bay Campground can now be booked online
    • New barbecue and upgrades to day use area in Stage Two works

    The campground and recreation area at Lucky Bay in Cape Le Grand National Park has been officially reopened today after more than $4.2 million in upgrades.


    Stage Two works included a new ablution block; and a new recreation area separate from the campground with barbecue shelters and toilets.


    The redevelopment will deliver an enhanced visitor experience by increasing camping capacity, providing a clear separation between day and overnight visitors, and improved facilities.


    Lucky Bay and Cape Le Grand campgrounds can also now be booked through the Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions' online campground booking system at https://parkstaybookings.dbca.wa.gov.au  


    Comments attributed to Environment Minister Stephen Dawson:


    "Famous for its white sand, turquoise waters and beach-loving kangaroos, Lucky Bay is one of the most recognised destinations in Australia. 


    "So it's no surprise that demand for camping at Lucky Bay far exceeds the availability, particularly during the peak season between December and April.


    "These upgrades will cater for the increased demand and provide a contemporary camping experience for visitors to Lucky Bay.


    "Online booking will further enhance the visitor experience and allow people to book ahead of time to avoid missing out on a campsite."


    Comments attributed to Tourism Minister Paul Papalia:


    "Lucky Bay is regularly recognised as one of Australia's best beaches and features heavily in Tourism WA's promotion of the State to tourism markets around the world.


    "Cape Le Grand National Park attracts more than 180,000 visits annually with a steady year- on-year increase of about five per cent.


    "Attracting more people, more often to regional Western Australia is an important focus in Tourism WA's Two-Year Action Plan and this upgrade at Lucky Bay will help us achieve that goal."
