Camping in Hopetoun: WA’s best kept holiday secret

Hopetoun Main Beach

In the weeks leading up to Easter, I had the same conversation with several different people. When asked where we were going for the Easter break, and I replied Hopetoun, each person had the same response: ‘Where’s that?’ And, to be honest, I’m now inclined not to tell anyone because I believe it’s the best […]
