Set in a semi-rural/bushland setting Glenbrook is only 5kms from the township of Margaret River, in the midst of the tourist attractions for which this corner of the world has become famous.

Accommodation

  2. A toilet block is available for ladies and gents with shower facilities.

How to get there

Glenbrook Cottages is located 5 km south of Margaret River.

To get there continue along the Bussell Hwy through Margaret River township until you come to Darch Rd, turn left, follow until you come to the Glenbrook sign turn right, keep the main building on your right and follow dirt road to the camping area.

Adventures

All our adventures are guided by fully qualified instructors; your safety always comes first.

We provide you with all the adventure equipment needed. You need to bring:

  • Outdoor type clothing that can handle getting dirty
  • Hiking boots/shoes for caving and abseiling. Protective footwear for kayaking is compulsory
  • Sun block
  • Water bottle or Camelback
  • Torch with spare batteries (we recommend a robust Dolphin type. If you intend to partake in the caving activities then you can tie a strap to it so you can hang it off your shoulder). A headtorch is also a good option
  • Good sense of humour to face a day of challenges

Activities on offer

  • Abseiling: will be conducted in two locations, one in the Jarrah forest of the Leeuwin Naturaliste National Park and the other at the Willyabrup sea cliffs overlooking a magnificent coast line.
  • Kayaking: we take you on a paddle on the Blackwood River taking in the sights of what nature has to offer.
  • Caving: we go underground to view the hidden marvels of nature. Caves hold a history to the development of mainland Australia and early man.

Meals

Bring all that you wish to eat / share. There are barbeque facilities and camping stoves for cooking.

It would be a good idea to bring a pre cooked meal for the first night.

The camp starts 1pm on March 29th and finishes after breakfast on April 1st.
