02.12.2018 – Glenbrook Country Retreat & Camping, Margaret River, Western Australia

We pre-booked for one night here, but decided it was so lovely and peaceful that we would stay on and just ‘chill’ for the rest of the weekend. Plenty of trees – and our friendly and humorous host, Jason made us welcome and ensured we weren’t parked near any trees that would be likely to drop some branches or worse on us. One tree had fallen recently, apparently just a couple of days after he relocated someone’s tent. Or was this another tale of his? His welcoming speech included the do’s and don’ts of camping at Glenbrook and a warning to wear shoes and not thongs when walking the trails on the property because snakes are on the move – adding with a laugh that there “hasn’t been a fatality – recently!” One of the ‘don’ts’ was no playing of Country Music. Our reply that we would save the country music until we visit the Tamworth Festival in January was met with a swift “That’s a good place for country music to be – over the other side of Australia!” and a laugh.

The facilities adjacent to the camping ground included camp kitchen, verandah with chairs and tables, within the amenities block. Plenty of kangaroos around sharing the paddock next to the camping ground with some horses and a donkey. Recommend a stay there, especially as a base for exploring the Margaret River area, and have a yarn with Jason.
