Hi Andy,

I'm currently in WA and spent a good few days down in Esperance on the south coast a couple of weeks ago. The beaches were fantastic and there was a hostel and campground more or less on the beach - so would definitely recommend. As for surfing, you might want to try Margaret River out on the west coast, apparently it's a bit of a hot spot for surfing, as are the surrounding beaches. Look out for Gnarabup, Redgate and Suicides.

Good luck.. thumbsup.png

Hey Andrea,

I'm camping at Rottnest in January. As there's only one campsite I assume that you stayed there.

What was it like?

Also Andy, there's a hostel across the road from Cottesloe beach in Perth that's pretty cool. Nice beach too
