Big Lagoon

National Parks and Reserves

Big Lagoon is a series of magnificent tranquil lagoons located just outside of Denham. Sit on the shore and watch the abundant marine life including dolphins, sting rays and sharks as they frolic in the shallow waters.

If you are looking for a more interactive experience, the lagoon is a perfect place to explore by canoe where you can get up close to the rich diversity of marine life within.

For the avid fishermen the fish are plentiful and will not disappoint.

Whilst in the area do not miss the chance to visit the world famous Monkey Mia where dolphins come into the shore to interact with humans, creating a truly unforgettable experience.

This picturesque waterway is a spectacular and peaceful location in Francois Peron National Park, eight hours drive north of Perth. The Big Lagoon is only accessible by four wheel drive and fresh water is not available, so be prepared.

Camping in Western Australia’s natural areas is a special experience. Selected campgrounds from across the state are now bookable online for a trial period.
