Waroona Dam, Lake Navarino

One and half hours from Perth, Waroona Dam better known as Lake Navarino, is the perfect spot for to visit with the family.Waroona Dam, Lake Navarino

Known as a haven for water sports enthusiasts, there are plenty of recreational activities to partake in – including freshwater fishing, canoeing, water skiing, jet skiing or just bring your boat for a great time out on the water.Waroona Dam, Lake Navarino

Just be warned, there is no official boat ramp, most just disembark from the bank.Waroona Dam, Lake Navarino

It is an obvious choice in Summer but just as spectacular in Winter as the rains fill the dam up and usually it overflows.Waroona Dam, Lake Navarino

This is a draw card for visitors – who doesn’t love an overflowing dam! Waroona Dam, Lake NavarinoWe’ve been a few times and it is very popular. If you are just “sight-seeing” and would like to watch the dam over flow, there is a car park adjacent the Lake Navarino Campsite, down the bottom. You can then walk down to the overflow section from there. Just be warned that it is rather narrow with just the gravel verge to walk on and there is no actual designated viewing platform.

As it is the main entry to the lake and the various tracks – proceed with caution especially if you have real littlies or prams as cars do come over the hill quick and many don’t slow down.Waroona Dam, Lake Navarino

But don’t let that put you off. The surrounds in or out of the car are breathtaking and there are plenty of opportunities to get out and about safely.Waroona Dam, Lake Navarino
