LOCALITY : Albany
SITE NAME : Shelly Beach
GPS REF : 35 06 58 S 117 37 44 E
DIRECTIONS : West from Albany on Lower Denmark Rd, south into Cosy Corner Rd., west into Coombes Rd., south into Shelly Beach Rd.
NOTES : This is a National Park. Probably the most scenic campsite on this part of the coast but no access for big rigs. DPaW administered site. Check access FIRST if you intend to go to this site with a caravan. We have seen a 14 foot van down there but wouldn't try it ourselves. STEEP DESCENT and no room for 2 vehicles on parts of the road. A popular place for hang gliders.

SITE NAME : East Bay (Two Peoples Bay)
GPS REF : 34 56 16.80 S 118 10 46.87 E
DIRECTIONS : South Coast Highway. 38Km east of Albany. T/O on to Homestead Road. Betty's Beach is left at a Y intersection and East Bay is to the right.
NOTES : Very nice spot, steep descent. This site has a 'No Caravans' sign on it again. The area has been up graded and is smaller with no turn around area for caravans. Great still for tents and small motorhomes. Betty's Beach is still ok and they have even put in new toilets including a disabled one. - Thanks to Jan for the info. Roads are mostly unsealed and the condition varies from good to very rough depending on how long ago they were graded.
