Please note: As of 17 January 2022, Serpentine Pipehead Dam's recreation area will permanently close. This closure helps us to ensure the security of this critical water source. We appreciate your understanding. For more information, contact us on 13 13 75. 

You can still visit Serpentine Dam's recreation area. This will receive an upgrade in 2022.

This is the smaller of the two dams located on the scenic Serpentine River. Like Serpentine Dam, this is an important link back to Perth’s industry boom in the late 1950s and 1960s.
