About Waroona Dam/Lake NavarinoThe Waroona Dam was built on the Drakes Brook with work completed in 1966. The reservoir known as Lake Navarino covers an area of 145 hectares with its primary use being irrigation. It is also used extensively for recreational activities such as water skiing, wakeboarding, freshwater fishing (trout & marron in season and with licence), canoeing and kayaking.
The surrounding forest provides beautiful displays of wildflowers in season. Bush walking is a popular pastime for many visitors and part of the old Bibbulmun Track is still in existence and has been reopened for public use as part of the Munda Biddi Trail. Dogs on leash are permitted. Ten minutes east of Waroona, there is a caravan park with on-site accommodation plus a lakeside camping area.
