Exploring WA’s Coral Coast: RV Solutions Biggest Camping Adventure Yet!

The team from RV Solutions share with us their latest camping adventure where they took to the road to explore Australia’s Coral Coast.

“The RV Solutions leadership team headed up to the Coral Coast on our annual camping trip in May. While we work together everyday, we are also great friends out of the office, and have a passion for exploring WA, putting our caravans and campers to the test, and finding hidden gems in our great state. This year our trip had 11 adults, 11 kids and 5 dogs – the biggest trip yet!

We live and breathe caravanning. Almost everything we sell has been tested out by us in person – from the caravans we sell to the accessories we recommend. This trip we took two Olympic Caravans to test out, as this is a new caravan brand for us. They have been around for 30 years so know what they are doing, but was important for us to test them out first hand. Safe to say we pushed them both pretty hard and they did not skip a beat!

We head away on the Ningaloo portion to our trip every year, it’s become something that we all count down the days for. We normally book at Winderabandi Point, but with a group our size, we struggled to get enough sites close together to accommodate us all. So we booked South Lefroy Bay for the first time and it has become our new favourite. The Coral Coast is such a stunning part of our state so some families headed up earlier or stayed later to explore Coral Bay, Exmouth and Bullara Station, before we all congregated at Ningaloo. .

Most people know that the Ningaloo Road is currently closed and the only access in is via Coral Bay’s Caradabia Ningaloo Road or via Yardie Creek. The Coral Bay road is travelled a lot less, and there’s hardly any information online about it, so we saw it as a great challenge for us to tackle! The road is corrugated, rutted and tight with barely any spots for passing oncoming traffic. We let our tyres down to 20 psi on car and caravan and took the road super slow, but it was still one of the rougher tracks we have taken. The view once you get to the end is so worth it. Couple that with being on a beach for a week straight with your best mates, the kids all have their best mates and the most incredible coastline ever – it’s pretty hard to beat. We saw countless fish, dolphins, turtles, sharks, and also had a Hercules Military plane fly low overhead which was pretty cool.

It’s pretty hard to top Ningaloo Station but Bullara Station Stay comes pretty close. If you’re after an ‘experience’ not just a campground then you have to go. There’s plenty to do with a fully licenced bar and restaurant on site. We enjoyed the Sunday night long table dinner (seafood night), but would go back in a heartbeat for the Friday night burger night. The station has a private 4WD track to the gulf and plenty of walking trails as well. You won’t leave empty handed, we devoured our share of their famous scones and sausage rolls, picked up some meat from the shop and a hand carved knife made from a horse shoe.

Everyone in the RV Solutions team lives and breathes caravanning and camping and it’s great to come back from these sorts of trips and pass on what we have learned or discovered to our customers. I think that’s what makes us so relatable. We don’t just sell and repair caravans, we are out there exploring with you too.”
