Information

Located on the Oakover River and not far from Woodie Woodie. Bitumen road to within 15 kilometres and then an easy gravel track in. Once there it is a sand bed to get close to the water hole. Best camping down to the right now that the trees are gone.

Carrawine Gorge is located within the Warrawagine Station and if you seek to access this area then please contact the station lessees on 08 9176 5900. Track Care WA Inc. have put on hold plans to install an eco-toilet due to devastation and flooding caused in March 2004 by Cyclone Fay.

This site has long been a favourite camping area, with a long gorge lined by pebbles and massive river red gums. The cyclone has actually ripped out and washed away all the gums. See before and after pictures above.
