A note from Barry Chare - one of one our past Secretarys & Editors of FWDV.


235 km north of Geraldton, close to the turn off to Kalbarri and the Indian Ocean. 

Having served as secretary and editor for FWDVic in the past I am writing to let you know about the Billabong Road House in Western Australia on the North West Coastal Highway. 

This was always a ‘must see’ destination for Victorian clubs heading to WA.  

I want all Victorian members to know that the roadhouse is still functioning and offers accommodation, meals, beverages, showers and camping options. The overnight camping area is well laid out with plenty of space for vehicles, trailers, vans and trucks. The message from the roadhouse is:

Please call in at the original Billabong Roadhouse where we welcome all travellers.

We are happy to provide our free overnight parking area to help make sure that people don't drive tired and yes you are welcome to a free hot shower and toilet if needed.  

Please call 08 9942 5919 if you want to book our self contained accommodation. We are looking forward to more people being able to travel. Check out our wide range of souvenirs and gifts including kids toys from just $3.

Be aware that there is a nearby Shell Billabong Homestead which has erected signs which hide the Billabong Roadhouse. Please support the local community and support the original Billabong Road house which has served Victorian 4WD drivers and families for many years.
