Approval for Camping on Private or Unapproved Land - Western Australia

Description

You may require this approval if you intend to camp on land other than a caravan park or camping ground. Camping means dwelling in a caravan or other vehicle that is designed for habitation and sleeping purposes.

You are entitled to camp on land that you own, or have a right to occupy, for up to three nights within a twenty-eight day period without an approval. If you intend to camp for a longer period of time, you will require this approval from the Council.
