Camping Out

Nature; Pure and Simple

Sometimes keeping it simple is all that is required. Marrinup is tucked away in the bush surrounded by the best nature can offer; flowing streams and falls, surrounded by an abundance of wildlife, birds and stunning native bush.

Marrinup is open for camping year round and is most popular in Spring when the Marrinup Falls are flowing and the wildflowers are in bloom.  Bike or hike; the bush is waiting.
