Busselton to Tozer’s Bush Camp

We left home at 7.30am and headed through the wheatbelt towns of Katanning and Gnowangerup towards our destination of Tozer’s Bush Camp, near Bremer Bay in WA’s Great Southern Region. We haven’t done a lot of travelling through the wheatbelt areas, so this was a change of scenery from the main highways which usually follow a more coastal route. It was a refreshing change to be meandering down rural winding roads with vineyards, crops, cows, sheep, dams and farmyard buildings to look at on the way.

It was around midday when we drove through Katanning. The Rotary park on the way out of town had shaded seats, so a pleasant place to take a break and eat our pies and vanilla slices purchased from the local bakery. The steak and kidney pies were fine, the vanilla slices definitely wouldn’t make it into the finals of any vanilla slice competition, and being a connoisseur of vanilla slices, I think I’m a pretty good judge.

On we travelled, with the next noteworthy town being Gnowangerup I probably wouldn’t have paid any attention to this little place except one of my friends used to have a farm there. All of the towns we passed through seemed to be very tidy little towns, with well kept gardens. Gnowangerup was no exception.

We arrived at Tozer’s bush camp at around 2.30pm, paid our $90 for three nights, and chose our site.

There are 48 sites to choose from, all segregated from each other by a bank of native flora. Tozer’s Bush Camp occupies 100 acres of magnificent native bushland. which I’ll tell you a bit more about later. I was amazed at the variety of species between our caravan and the next. Here are a few of the species that surrounded our caravan.

We set up with time for a walk down one of the many walk tracks.

I booked onto one of the tours of the property the next day, we cooked and ate dinner, played a few games of cards, and turned in not much after nine. Next up – more photos of wild flowers and orchids from around the property…….

  1. How lovely to be surrounded by wildflowers. I’m interested to know what you get for your $30 a night. We’ve found the price of bush camps around here to be similar, but all you get is a site on a private property, no power or amenities. It’s a bit steep.


    1. I’ll put a post up on this one soon. There’s no water or power to your site, but a lovely big fully powered camp kitchen, and good ablution blocks. Unfortunately there isn’t a dump point making long stays difficult. Also internet is sketchy.
