Ayr Sailean - Christmas trip
Ok, lets escape from the Perth heat and head down South. We have decided to go back down to Denmark after having a great relaxing Christmas break at Ayr Sailean. This is a great camping ground, ask those who went last year, and as such there is a fee to stay. I have reserved 8 non powered sites from 23/12/18 to 02/01/19. Please contact the camping ground directly to book your site, and pay. Tell them that you are with GoBush 4wd reference James. These sites can only be held blocked until the end of October, thereafter they will go onto the open market. For those who don’t like the camping there are Chalets and cabins, as well as powered sites too…. see website http://ayrsaileancamping.com.au/  This camping ground has a special permit to allow camp fires in summer, wood is available there, last year we were provided it for free……may again or $7 per bag. The region has a diverse range of paces of interest and has activities, so something for everyone. Please contact Jo directly on 0427 632 264… she does eventually pick up or return your call. Non powered sites are $27/day.
