Please note: All Perth dam picnic areas will be closed from 9am Thursday 20 January until further notice due to dangerous weather conditions forecast by Bureau of Meteorology and closure of national parks by the Parks and Wildlife Service at the Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions. Please avoid these areas and observe all signage.

Our dams have great visitor facilities such as picnic areas, walk trails and lookouts and birdlife and are a great spot for a day out.

We have 9 dams within the Darling Range that provide around one fifth of Perth’s water supply and most of the water distributed through the Goldfields and Agricultural region.
