Please note: All Perth dam picnic areas will be closed until further notice due to extreme weather and fire risk. Please avoid these areas and observe all signage. Visit the Emergency WA website for more info.


Our dams have great visitor facilities such as picnic areas, walk trails and lookouts and bird life 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.
