There is some correlation between what is going on in the UK and the illegal camping in Rotary Park, by the river in Margaret River. The Global Economic Crisis is pushing some people to the brink of survival. Western Australia is probably the luckiest place in the entire world, supported by our mining boom and still relatively unpopulated. Margaret River the jewel in this crown, with her pristine environment and perfect weather.

On another occasion, two girls, who were sleeping in their car, knocked on my door asking if they could have a shower! They were carrying their towels and toilet bags.
This is only the tip of the iceberg re Margaret River's illegal campers. Some big picture thinking is needed as there is going to be a lot more people heading our way. And, they will need proper facilities.
