Tourist parks in Perth
« on: March 10, 2013, 11:52:49 AM »
Hi,

I have been looking for places to stay and set up Moke Central while in Perth and have the following list of potential candidates. If anyone has had any experience with any of them, please post up or let me know.


http://www.perthcentral.com.au/index.html
Ascot. Closest one to Perth, just south east on the Swan River.

http://www.banksiatourist.com.au/index.html
Hazelmere. Appears well appointed. South East of Perth.

http://www.kenlorncaravanpark.com.au/index.php
Queens Park. A little further South East of Perth

http://www.kwr.net.au/index.html
Karrinyup. This one is up north of Perth.

http://www.aspenparks.com.au/accommodation/western-australia/fremantle/coogee-beach-holiday-park/default.aspx
Coogee. South of Freemantle and possibly getting on the outer limits of where i would like to be based.

As I find more I will post up the links.

I have already culled one park from the list for having a nice pretty picture of 'No Dogs' on their site. :) Pets and Children will need to be welcome on this trip.

Hi Terry,

I can have a look at a few of those parks over the next couple of weeks if you like.

Ascot is the closest to Perth CBD and most central. Traffic can be nasty at peak hour, but close to some major roads and the airport so going in any direction is fairly easy. I drive past it quite a bit.

Banksia/Hazelmere is on the eastern edge - a bit industrial, but close to the hills. Not sure what is close in the way of shopping, food etc though. We go close to it quite regularly, so will take more notice next time.

I didn't know about the Queens Park one. :o It looks to be in the middle of Welshpool, which is the major industrial/transport hub of Perth. Fairly central, but I doubt there'd be much around it apart from truck stops and freight yards..... During the day traffic is shocking. :-\

Karrinyup is about 10 minutes from our place in Perth, so can easily look at that one. It's really not far north (as far as Perth goes), and should be a more relaxed suburban feel. It may be a bit extra driving though depending on where you plan on going, being quite westerly (but only 5 mins from the beach).

Coogee used to be the ass end of the world, and right next to the live sheep export jetty and abattoir! I think it has improved a lot since then, and quite popular for school camps etc. It is a bit south, but not bad for Freo and anyone heading to the Southwest. If I get time I will have a look - but last time I drove past it was very unimpressive.


Cheers, MD.

I can help with the Queens Park- You do not want to stay here(only last year there was a serious assault at this so called "Caravan Park".It's mainly full of onsite low budget accommodation.
Coogee is okay-however just down the road is Woodmans Point:
http://woodman-point-holiday-park.wa.big4.com.au/
It's a much nicer place and not far from where I live(Rockingham).
I wouldn't worry too much about being to far from the city,as the Freeway system is excellent,and as MD had said you might like to relax a little,and there's nothing better than sipping a beer or a glass of wine whilst watching the sunsets over the coastline!

I liked a couple of the suggestions on triggertravel.com so will probably add them to the itinerary for the group while others are probably best suited for people who want to get around perth and look after themselves in the week leading up to the weekend event.

The Big 4's seem to Pet Unfriendly so bot a good option as I suspect there is more than just me travelling with a four legged friend.

Thanks,
Terry

Hi,

I am going to have to start making some sort of decision on where we are staying soon. Has anyone got any updates or anything to add to what has been said so far in this post?

The key to both of those ones was that someone could go around and check them out in person beforehand. You can get the basics off the phone/internet, but hard to get the full picture.

Obviously a bit far for Terry to recce these ones, so local help will be very useful.

I just flew back from WA this afternoon, and whilst I was there, I stayed at a caravan park in Forrestfield.
See Link: http://www.discoveryholidayparks.com.au/wa/south_east/perth
Reasonably central, and average pricing.
very clean and well equipped.

Hi,

The candidates for Moke Central so far.

Under consideration.
http://acclaimparks.com.au/swanvalley/index.php   West Swan (North East of Perth)
http://acclaimparks.com.au/kingsway/index.php      Maledey  (North of Perth)
http://www.kwr.net.au/index.html                           Kaqrrinyup (North Westi'sh of Perth)
http://www.perthcentral.com.au/index.html             Maylands  (North East of Perth)

Possibly considering....
http://www.aspenparks.com.au/accommodation/western-australia/fremantle/coogee-beach-holiday-park/default.aspx

No Dogs, so probably no Moke Central

Hi

We called in at the Aspen Parks south of Fremantle - Woodman Point & Coogee Beach last week quite nice parks Coogee Beach is also no tents - all sites have concrete pads (that is the info we were given)

From memory both are no dogs so maybe they need to fall into the noncontender bucket

Cheers
