Lake Poorrarecup, north of Mount Barker, is an enormous freshwater lake with sandy beaches that presents a glorious setting for a myriad of activities. Enjoy a swim in the tantalising calm waters or sunbathe on the soft sandy beach. Children will feel safe thanks to the gentle sloping shorelines.
Launch your boat from the boat ramp and spend the day sailing the huge expanse of water. Watching the prolific displays of the resident water birds and enjoy the idyllic surroundings. Alternatively join many of the locals and water-ski or canoe on the calm flat water.
Serve up a feast at the shaded picnic facilities before returning to the water or exploring the area on foot. Take a walk along the nature trail to explore the bush land and keep an eye out for various orchids that grow here.
Complete the perfect day out watching the magnificent sun set over the lake. Lake Poorrarecup is a 20 minute drive west or Cranbrook and a four and a half hour drive southeast of Perth.
