Big Brook Dam presents a glorious setting for a freshwater swim, canoe and nature walk. Surrounded by Karri forest, it provides an idyllic location to soak in the crystal clear water or sunbathe on the sandy beach. Take out a canoe for a paddle or try your luck at fishing from the banks.
Start your visit with a four kilometre walk around the dam along the beautiful nature trail. Look out for kangaroos that can often be seen soaking up the sun on the banks of the dam. Cool off in the dam and then settle down for a barbecue lunch whilst taking in the magnificent surroundings.
The picturesque setting has inspired many artists to capture the Karri forests and water on canvas. Pemberton has several galleries which are worth a visit to view the landscape inspired art and purchase a reminder of your trip.
Big Brook Dam is located just five minutes from Pemberton, and four hours drive south of Perth.
