Thomas Fishery Camp is located in the Cape Arid National Park - a large and exceptionally scenic park best known for its stunningly beautiful beaches, clear blue seas and rocky headlands.

Campers can enjoy swimming, snorkelling, fishing and bushwalking, as well as photography and birdwatching thanks to the intriguing mix of plants that grow on and near the area, attracting some fascinating and endangered wildlife.

This camp is based at a historic site, originally used as a whaling station in the 1870s. Nothing remains of the station today, but you may see southern right whales along the coast when they come close to shore to give birth and nurse their young.

The campground itself has very basic campsites with few facilities. Campfires are not permitted.

Campers are advised to bring enough drinking water for the duration of their stay.

Bookings cannot be made. Camping fees do not apply at this campground; however, park entry fees apply at Cape Arid National Park.
