We went to Shannon National park with WAERA, the endurance riders association, and it was fabulous! The new camp grounds are lovely and very horse friendly! The facilities are new and clean, with hot water showers available from a wood fired HWS. There is no power or telephone reception, but there is a caretaker on site and its 52 km to Manjimup town site, where you can get everything you need. There is a Paddock area with some yards set up for horse camping, access is good, with bitumen road all the way to the camp site. Best to be doing the 52km from Manjimup in daylight hours if you have a larger float, as the roads are winding and steep into the national park, easy but slow during the day, a bit stressful at night. The trails are the most beautiful in the south west, with tall forrest canopy most of the way. Plenty of room to ride in groups. Mobile coverage is non existant (as at 2019, june) so having a base to check in was a safety must have. The local SES (emergency services) were fantastic, and spent hours tracking a horse that ran off after a rider fell, retrieving the horse unhurt. definately recommend this ride to everyone, its worth the drive and camping there was a delight!
