Karijini Eco RetreatPosted on
When camping in Karijini National Park you’ve only two main choices – and if you are looking for higher quality accommodation, you’ll need to check in at the Karijini Eco Retreat.
The retreat has a range of accommodation, but its deluxe ‘eco tents’ and added facilities are what set it aside from the other campgrounds located in the park.
Located near Joffre Gorge the retreat prides itself on its environmentally-friendly credentials – something you’ll notice during your stay.
It’s not all luxury glamping though: Karijini Eco Retreat also offers a number of unpowered campsites suited to those travelling with a camper or caravan – or preferring to pitch a tent.
You will of course have access to the key amenities, such as shared solar showers and toilets, but you will have to provide your own power. When cooking you can make use of the shared bush kitchen, and there’s also an onsite restaurant and bar, as well as a kiosk for the essentials.
Or you can stay in one of the dorm style Eco Tents, catering for up to 8 people in bunks. You will also have access to the showers, toilets and camp kitchen.
There’s also Eco Cabins – which sleep up to 8 people in two separate blocks of 4, with a shared deck area.
For more privacy – and the real glamping option – you should opt for the Deluxe Eco Tents. These come with en-suite bathrooms, spacious interiors and are serviced every 4 days. A luxury retreat after a day spent adventuring in the National Park.
Karijini Eco Retreat maintains a high environmental standard and employs eco-friendly elements – from the materials used (recycled timber), the use of natural products and natural ventilation. Interestingly, the eco retreat is owned by a corporation which has been established to protect the interests of the traditional Aboriginal owners.
Getting there: Karijini Eco Retreat is 80 km from Tom Price, off Weano Road.
