69km from Exmouth via northern entry station, Yardie Creek Road is sealed. The short access road from Yardie Creek Road and roads within the campground are unsealed. Alternative access from the south is suitable for high-clearance 4WD vehicles only and requires crossing the tidal Yardie Creek across soft, shifting sand. This route should not be attempted by anyone who does not have the appropriate equipment, knowledge, skills and experience.
Please note: GPS Co-Ordinates are approximate and provided in most cases to get you to the entrance. Once inside the park there should be signs to the actual camp grounds. Failing this please check with National Parks for further directions.
