Anybody every visit Sandy Cape?? Please read!

Hi guys, here's the deal -

I'm completing a uni research paper on opportunities for nature-based tourism at Sandy Cape, north of Jurien.

The paper is not taking a side or anything - it's just an assignment basically to complete my degree. I just wanted to choose a topic that'd allow me to go camping!!

If you guys could please complete my survey, I would be extremely grateful. And you never know, it may one day have an effect on things.



Much appreciated!!

Ive completed the survey.  Great place to camp out!! One addition would be more rubbish bins and increased collection of the bins they have (not many).

What is wrong with taking YOUR rubbish home?  You bought it there in the first place!

Footprints should be the only thing left behind.

Cheers Pete

Pete a bit harsh

I say it more from the point of view that other people leave THEIR rubbish laying around and I noticed when I camped there on tuesday that their was not a lot of bins.  Probably why lazy people leave it around.  I collected 2 bags of litter from around my camp site which I dumped off in Jurien when visiting Whitey.

You are right on though...just leave those foot prints.

I completely agree with the rubbish business. It always amazes me the amount of rubbish I find at places like this. As well as more bins, maybe the provision of garbage bags at the entry or something? Similar to the dog turd bags at parks? Could encourage people to bring their rubbish home, or at least until they can dump it at Jurien or something.


On another note, is it still weedy? Might have to go for a 'research' trip again shortly ;-)

Chris there was a notice on the toilet door from the Shire offering a position at the park for 3 months.  Probably like a carteker position, anyway 3 months up there for your research paper might be just the trick.


Good luck.  Rhyss

Thanks again guys. Yeah there

Thanks again guys. Yeah there is a skip bin there... however when I was there a few weeks back I think I found the most rubbish in the immediate area around the bin. It isn't good enough just to throw rubbish AT the bin.

One positive thing I noticed though, there was a bloke teaching his young fella to 4x4, south of the campsite towards the island. After driving in circles for half an hour, the kid got out of the car and spent 15 minutes flattening out the damage from his tyres. Never seen anyone do that before!
