The Landy

Hi there! I’m Jo Rogers and Getaway WA is my side project blog about camping in Western Australia. I’m WA-born and bred and my husband and I love to get out camping whenever we can in our old Land Rover and an Oz Tent. We have experienced camping in locations throughout WA and we’re still exploring.

Getaway WA reviews the sites where we have stayed and provides a little more information on each area. Something I found frustrating with information online is that many places have few images of the facilities and the camp sites themselves. In my reviews, I try to offer as much information and images as possible to help others planning a trip.

Admittedly, in the past, I haven’t been terribly adventurous but that’s changing. Until a few years ago, I had an itching to experience something more in life, but I wasn’t sure what. Then I went camping and have since realised a love of the WA outdoors which had been lying dormant. Since then I have grown to love photography, bushwalking and even the occasional bike ride.

We visit a range of camping grounds from national parks to caravan parks and try to get away when we can. One day we’d like to upgrade to a camper trailer but for now, the OzTent is doing a pretty good job. Sometimes we leave it behind and just sleep in the back of the Land Rover.
