Seabird WA is just over an hours drive north of Perth. If you are going to stay at Seabird with the family we don't think you can go past the Seabird Private Caravan Park for your chosen accommodation.
The Seabird Private Caravan Park is located right alongside the beach. It's a great location for kids and families for many reasons -
It's easy to access the beach from the grassed area at the Seabird Private Caravan Park. There is a beautiful board walk that goes straight down to the beach. It has a series of built in seats on the way down - so it's a great spot for an afternoon drink to watch the sunset. The beach is sandy, no rocks and perfect for families. A shower is available at the top of the beach boardwalk access to wash off sand.
Small boats can be parked in the caravan park if arranged prior to your visit. There is a boat ramp at the park so it's ideal to get your four wheel drive onto the beach or if you want to put the boat in for a bit of fishing or drop in the jet ski.
Bring some shade, sand toys, beach cricket set, boogie boards and fishing rods, if the weather is nice you'll be spending a lot of time here.If you have a four wheel drive there are two entry points so you can bring it onto the beach.
The main grassed area is the local meeting place for the adults and kids - we enjoyed a swim in the pool each day in the early afternoon. Seating is located around the pool so it's a great spot to sit back and relax while the kids swim, run on the grass, play on the playground or ride their bikes around.
This area is where social events are often held and you can be sure to find some other adults gathering to watch the sunset. The kids will be sure to make some friends here too.
Unfortunately there are no ball games permitted in the caravan park, however the beach is great for a game of cricket or a kick of the ball or you could hire the tennis court.
The caravan park at Seabird is a private caravan park - so each lot is individually owned and there are many owners who reside in the caravan park full time, or visit on a regular basis. Accommodation options include -
All accommodation is powered, each lot has it's own bathroom block and most are air conditioned. Prices vary dependant on what is set by the owners, however on the last visit we paid $95 per night for a caravan with annex that was one road from the beach and close to the playground and pool.
The caravan with annex was very comfortable and had everything we needed (you just need to bring your own linen) - considering that between the beach, having bbqs and swimming in the pool all we did was sleep here it was perfect. It was air-conditioned, had a DVD player and tv, fridge, kitchen, bathroom with toilet, sink, shower, washing machine, BBQ, clothes line and outdoor setting with plastic chairs.
The Seabird Tavern is open daily from 11am - midnight. You can access the tavern from a track at the north side of the caravan park alongside the beach - the tavern is literally located at the top of the path. They do a good range of pub meals, including kids meals, with generous size servings for both main and kids meals (just ask my son who got the biggest chip he's ever seen!). There is lots of room for the kids to run around on the grass and of course there are fantastic views of the ocean to enjoy in the outdoor dining area during the day.
The Seabird Sunset Cafe & Deli is also open daily and you can get yourself a coffee, muffins, fish & chips, milkshakes, burgers, ice-creams and more. This is just a short walk or drive up the road from the Seabird Private Caravan Park.
To book accommodation at the Seabird Private Caravan Park you must call the person who manages each property (some are managed directly by their owners, but many are managed by on site managers). Booking enquiries are not managed at the shop and you need to arrange your accommodation before you go - as there is no guarantee of vacancies if you just turn up.
Site Manager Kim 0474447217
The majority of the sites are managed by Francine - and if they have none available they should be able to ask around and give you another number to call after checking the other site availability.
Seabird is some distance from medical and other emergency assistance. The nearest hospital is Joondalup, however there is an ambulance and Health Centre at Lancelin. In an emergency dial 000, there are also lists of the town first aiders at the front of the Seabird Private Caravan Park and near the Seabird Cafe. There is also a first aid kit available in the men's toilet in the centre toilet block located on the grassed area of the Seabird Private Caravan Park.
It's a good idea to take a photo of the sign when you arrive, so you have the phone numbers handy in the event of an emergency. Note mobile reception is limited, Telstra is quite good with good pockets of reception around the park, most other providers receive little to no service however.
What to Bring
FOOD - best to bring all your own groceries and food. There are some supplies at the Seabird Private Caravan Shop and Seabird Cafe & Deli or you can take the short drive to Lancelin also. Of course you will pay a much higher price for the essentials bought here and variety is limited.
LINEN - pillows, sheets and blankets/doonas, bath mat, bath towels and seperate beach towels
OTHER TOILETRIES - toilet paper, washing powder if you are staying long enough that you may need to wash some clothes
FOR THE KIDS - bikes, cricket set (for the beach), dvds (for some relaxing time), dive toys for the pool, shade to take down to the beach, boogie boards/skim disk, fishing gear, torches for night rides and walks, glow sticks to make kids more visible at night. If you have younger children you will need to bring high chairs and cots, as there is no hire available
BOATS - can be brought into the caravan park if prior arrangement is made
If you are looking for an affordable holiday, close to Perth, where you can pull up the car and not have to drive anywhere, so you can sit back and watch the kids run around while you relax, then Seabird is for you! We will certainly be going back again and again!
