Astro Location: Jacaranda Hill Farm Camping

This is such a gorgeous Hipcamp just an hour south of Perth and 30mins inland from Mandurah.


Jacaranda Hill Farm is a tranquil and lush sustainably-run farm owned by Rob and Sarah

Astrophotography at Jacaranda Hill Farm


Best astro view: to the east away from light pollution. Ideal for March to June astro.


Many of the sites have incredible views to the west over Mandurah. This would be great for a Milky Way Core over the city but be aware there is a lot of light pollution.


The Alcoa refinery to the southwest restricts shooting astro to the south. There is significant light pollution from Perth to the north.


Stargazing: good all directions though best to the east

From their website:


"Jacaranda Hill Farm is a sustainability-driven, off-grid camping experience that sits on 108ac of regenerative bushland at the edge of the Darling Scarp, behind the historical Fairbridge Village near Pinjarra, Western Australia."



Campsites:


There are several camps to choose from, each with gorgeous views. They are will spread out but big enough to camp with friends if you want.


Book camping here


Things to Remember:

- You must be self contained to remember to bring your own toilet and water, and take your rubbish home with you
