Update on opening of Yangie Bay campground upgrade, Coffin Bay National Park.

Media statement

Department of Environment, Water and Natural Resources is partnering with the Australian Government to undertake an upgrade of Yangie Bay Campground in Coffin Bay National Park.

Construction work commenced in May 2016, but has been delayed by persistent wet weather which has made conditions at the site unsuitable for construction to proceed.

Work is recommencing on 4 October 2016 and the campground will be reopened on or before Saturday 3 December 2016.

The campground is being closed during the construction period to ensure the safety of park visitors.

A temporary camping area has been established in Coffin Bay National Park at Golden Island Lookout (camper trailers, motorhomes and caravans only – no tent based camping permitted), this is the only 2WD accessible camping area in the park during the temporary closure of Yangie Bay Campground.

All other campgrounds in the park remain unaffected but can only be accessed via 4WD.

There are a number of campgrounds available in nearby Lincoln National Park. Local caravan parks will also be able to cater for campers during the temporary closure.

Once reopened, visitors to Yangie Bay Campground will be able to enjoy improved access for large camper trailers, motorhomes and caravans, and new campsites which have spectacular views over the bay.

In addition car parking and picnic facilities have been improved. The main park road is also being realigned to improve safety for those using the campground, and a significant amount of revegetation is occurring to improve the camping areas.

DEWNR apologises in advance for any inconvenience caused by the temporary closure of the campground and looks forward to reopening it for visitors to enjoy in the near future.
