Off Road Camper Trailers Allowed Into Purnululu National Park?

by Parry Johns
(Melbourne Vic)

I have had a read about towing caravans to the Bungles, thank you for that advice, but I have an Off Road Campertrailer that I have towed behind my 4WD vehicle to Kalumburu on a previous trip with my wife and children.

The Off Road Campertrailer is well maintained, has new All Terrain Tyres fitted, high ground clearance, along with shock absorbers etc. etc. My question is "Am I allowed to tow it in to the Purnululu National Park"????
We are thinking about coming up to the area in June / July 2010.

Camper Trailers in Bungles
by: Birgit

Hi John,
You certainly are. Caravans are not allowed, but there is no problem with trailers.

Of course you want a tough trailer, one that's not just "offroad" by name, but one that really is designed for this environment.

Your trailer is by the sounds of it. If it made it to Kalumburu and back then it will be fine in the Bungles!

Update:
After recent improvements to the track, the DEC reviewed their policy regarding caravans and trailers. The new rules are as follows:


Single axle off-road/heavy duty caravans and camper trailers are allowed.

Dual axle and standard (non off-road) caravans and campers are not allowed.

Camper trailer in the Bungles
by: Lance

We were there in July this year and towed a Tambo off road camper trailer and didn't have a problem. There are quite a few water crossings but most have dried up by then. It is about a 53 km trip that takes about 2-2.30 hours. We stayed at the top camp ground, Kurrajong I think from memory. It is a magnificent part of the country, try stay for at least 2 nights

Enjoy your trip

Lance
