Now they tell us something we already know....


Camping under the stars might just be the way to helping to rebuild happiness,

Camping is being lauded as way to help you feel better about yourself, get closer to your loved ones and create a sense of reconnection to the world.

Camping on the Dampier Archipelago islands in the Pilbara.

Helen Osler loves nothing more than going out bush exploring the gorges in her 4WD during downtime from a busy job in the Pilbara.  She believes it is perfect pastime for good mental health.

Pilbara people are enthusiastic fans of camping and a big advantage is the availability of easily accessible campsites where fires are allowed not too far from the towns of Karratha, Tom Price or Port Hedland.

Every weekend from May through to October local people head outdoors to the nearest creek, beach or riverbed to just chill out with nature and mates.

The ideal weather of blue skies, warm days and cool nights make for easy sleeping under the stars by your favourite waterhole.
