Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This place was absolutely something wild and amazing. The owner was kind to gave us a small discount as the room was lot of dusty and we didn't use it to sleep - just to repair from the wind while eating. Next the beach, long meditative walk and wild big lizard and a kangaroo next the ocean.

First off, this place is gorgeous—despite the horrendous hour-long gravel road drive.

Once you arrival, it Mother Nature at its best! Expansive views with well kept foliage.

The caretakers kept the place clean, removed garbage and cleaned outhouses daily, while most campers quietly enjoyed the landscape. Really quite pleasant.

That said, there are clearly different rules for the locals than for the guests. The lady that checked us in was less than enthusiastic to be there, she scolded us immediately upon arrival about driving too fast and complained about other campers destroying vegetation (fair enough, but save the attitude). Not a great first impression.

After enjoying peace and quiet for several nights (yay!), the locals through a HUGE, LOUD party, blasting music at full volume until 6am. Kind of kills the peaceful ambiance. Nothing was done to stop the party. In fact, many of the staff attended.

Later we were to find out our friendly neighbour was evicted for accidentally driving off the path for a moment (again, fair enough to want to preserve the landscape). But how he found out was the distressing part. One of the (very intoxicated) local party goers drove up with a full car of people early in the morning and pointed our neighbour out while he was sleeping in his tent. They forced him to leave immediately without warning or refund.

Suspiciously, 5 minutes later a family moved in that spot with many locals and staff greeting their arrival. The next night, yet another family moved in the spot to join them. What was once a quiet haven, turned into a loud, rambunctious and less than desirable atmosphere. We left early dispute paying for the nights ahead.

Seems like there’s a lot of hypocritical rules for locals and guests.

The nature is beautiful, most campers are respectful—just not the locals who make it clear you are on their turf.

Staying in the glamorous tents for a night, was absolutely beautiful, loved the experience and to wake up to those views were amazing. Going in January is it’s ups and down, there’s flys and it is hot however it’s quiet and you’ll have the beach mostly to yourself unless the surfs up. For a night in off season will set you back $180 a night. A bit steep but it was worth it for a night

This was our 4th stay at Red Bluff, Quobba Station. Jim & Bek are & have been a great bonus to this wild place. We stayed again in the eco tents on the beach for 3 nights & again loved the location, the noise of the surf during the night & exploring the coastline. We are beyond the age of surfing, but this is something special.
Thank you Jim & Bek for your friendship, excellent running of this isolated place & we look forward to another stay before too long. Cheers Ross & Rosie, Gael & Graeme.

Do NOT go here !!!!! The regulars call it ‘red bluff belly’ and it turns out it’s a regular and common occurrence!

Five of us all travelled 1000s kms from Perth for a friends milestone birthday - we all got terribly sick and it ruined our entire holiday and went on for weeks following.

The toilets are fly-blown and gastro is rife - the owners know and don’t seem to do anything about it.

It should be shut down until the toilet facilities are upgraded to a basic sanitary standard. The owners need to stop blaming people for bringing viruses to camp and start taking responsibility for their basic public health responsibilities by reinvesting some of the significant fees they collect.

PS don’t bother letting the owners or the Shire know they don’t care. Go straight to the State Health Department

We fell in love with the Bluff, for a city slicker who was a little apprehensive about leaving the comforts of running water and electricity, a week at Camp of the Moon gave our group the biggest luxury of all - connection to each other and the spot.

No wi-fi, no phone reception, no emails, no work calls, no Minecraft or You Tube, no Netflix or Stan, no consumerism or wants - just the Indian Ocean, a stunning Ningaloo Reef, the caves of the Bluff and something very special called Totoka Day Spa.

Therapist Jamie Ramsay magical physical touch and 5 star luxury expertise made for one of the best spa experiences of my life. Make that two, as one wasn’t enough. I booked in for a Full Body massage and a few days later an Island facial.

Now it’s just a matter of counting down the days until I get back to Red Bluff…Totoka (meaning Beautiful in Fijian) is so remote and secluded that bookings can only be made at the Red Bluff camp office (and they have no Insta page).

Thank you to Jim, Jamie and all the people who work so tirelessly all day so we are lucky enough to be able to visit their own paradise.

What a hike to get to - roads weren’t the best but OMG! The views! I couldn’t get enough of them. Photos just don’t do justice and it was simply spectacular! It was windy as and it kept those pesky mozzies and sandflies away...loved every minute we were there. Looking forward to another trip out there next year again.❤️

Loved Red Buff.Everything about it from the scenery to the surfer vibe and laid back atmosphere.The road in was rough and you could have got a van in to the outskirts but then its a long walk to the actual centre of Red Bluff.4 wheel drive only in further and is in dire need of grading or something as a lot of the road is washed out.There are beach shacks to hire and a coffee shop? come bar?Glamping for those with the money too.It just looked like my kind of place and could see myself staying there at least a week to just explore the area

If this place were easy to get to it would be spoilt by now. It is a little pocket of visual bliss carved out of the unforgiving surrounds.
We were helped so much with car troubles and once they were sorted you can’t help but be soothed by being brought back to nature. Come prepared with water and food and you’ll be fine. The camps are far enough apart that you won’t bother each other and the raw nature of the place reminds you that you are part of it not above it. Reconnect and enjoy.

Our stay in a tent was amazing. The view, weather and surroundings was beautiful. Will definitely be back. We walked up on top of the escarpment and along the bluff to watch the surfers. The place was well set out and no one on top of you.

Well, depends on the car and the caravan, but its a rough road and its about 100Ks drive. I drove there in a small toyota hiace camper and it looked like a bomb had gone off inside when i arrived RB. :)

"The marketing says that the Retreats supplies bed sheets, they don't: remember sheets. Camp sites closer to the bluff are less windy."

"The owners/site manager needs to allow locals from Carnarvon who have been travelling to this area since the 1960s, ( far longer than they have been there themselves) more permission for them to go to the other areas which they have been going to since they were kids to take and show their grandkids! These locals have kept it as it is currently so they can show their grandkids and now they are being restricted to where they can go. The owners have a responsibility to keep it as it is, that's fine, but allow the locals to go about what they have for years to show us visitors around this amazing place. Tips: Bring a camera, and don't tell anyone about this place unless they totally appreciate the worlds most beautiful beaches. This isn't a bring the kids and dogs place to holiday, its a bring the partner, some cheese and a glass of wine."
