Eagle Bluff, Fowler’s Camp, Whalebone and Goulet Bluff are four coastal sites south of Denham. These campsites have no amenities and are accessible using a two-wheel drive vehicle via unsealed roads. There is a maximum of four cars allowed per camping site and bookings are managed by the Shark Bay World Heritage Discovery & Visitor Centre on a ‘first come, first served’ basis.

To book an overnight camp:

You must have a permit, which cost $15 per night per vehicle for up to four people. Permits can only be issued on the day that you intend to camp. To buy a permit, please contact the Shark Bay World Heritage Discovery & Visitor Centre in person or via the telephone (9948 1590) to pay via credit card. The sites are patrolled by a Ranger, however permits cannot be purchased from the Ranger.
