cambray siding western australia

Cambray Pool, or Cambray Siding is located on a tributary of the Blackwood River, 2½ hours drive southwest of Perth. It has a long tradition of nude use that originated when it was the venue for an "alternative" festival in the 1960's. This is a bush camping spot with no facilities, so you need to take everything with you if you are camping. There are trees for shade and flat areas for pitching tents. There is no water, or toilet facilities.The pool has trees and snags so be careful entering and leaving the water. The nearest facilities are all in Nannup. Nannup Council has declared it as a site for nude use. Probably best during the summer from November to April. Cambray Siding is situated approximately 17 km NW of Nannup. Head north on the Vasse Highway (route 104) for 13.2km and then turn left into Cambray Road which is only a gravel track. If you are approaching from Busselton (from the north), pass through Jarrahwood on the Vasse Highway (route 104) heading towards Nannup and continue on for about 11 km, past St. Johns Brook Bridge. Turn right into Cambray Road. Once on Cambray Road, proceed for about 4.5 km and you will meet the old railway line that is now a walking trail. Turn right and drive for about 400 metres until you see a water tank, from here you will find several campsites. The swimming hole is on your left through the trees, just pick a good spot to stop. Use the "satellite" option on the map and zoom in for more detail.
