Originally we wanted to camp at Lake Mackenzie but as we arrived at the island there were signs everywhere saying there was no camping permitted so we decided to camp at Central Station and to us it was perfect. There are a number of camping spots with its own designated area. Apparently you are meant to have a specific permit for central station but we never got one and as we were never told anything about it (and miles from anywhere) we just decided to try out luck and not bother - noone ever said anything. We did have a general camping permit but whether this was the correct one we still dont know! Facilities are great - there are a number of washing up stations as well as toilets and showers ($1 for 5mins).

Washing up facilities
Toilets and Showers
Table and bench at each camping area within Central Station
