Caravan Parks & Camping

The Caravan Parks and Camping Grounds Act 1995 (the Act) is the principal legislation governing caravanning and camping in Western Australia. For those people considering establishing a caravan park or camping ground, it is strongly suggested that you obtain a copy of the Caravan Parks and Camping Grounds Regulations 1997. Within it is a lot of pertinent information to the requirements for the setting up and maintaining of a caravan park or camping ground.

In addition to caravan parks, this legislation also governs other camping issues. People found to be camping in locations where they have not sought permission of the landowner face infringements or the possibility of prosecution. For land owned or vested with the Shire of Nannup, unless prior approval has been granted, the penalty for a successful prosecution is up to $1,000.
