COVID-19 Update for Canebrake Pool
COVID-19 information for national park sites and campgrounds Camping: Parks and Wildlife Service advises that online campground bookings for Parks and Wildlife Service sites are suspended until further notice. Existing campsite bookings with a start date up to and including 31 May 2020 are being cancelled with full refunds. People with bookings will be contacted directly to arrange refunds. Over the Easter long weekend and school holidays, locals should stay at home and not go camping. National Parks: National parks remain open to the community to ensure that people in their local area can exercise and get some fresh air to support their wellbeing. People are urged to observe the State Government’s intrastate travel restrictions and observe social distancing rules when in a national park, regional park or reserve. This is an evolving situation and travel, site-specific and other restrictions may be further introduced.
Fresh water and isolation is one of the Margaret River region’s signature landscape narratives.
Enclosed by Jarrah-Marri forest on most sides, entrance to the pool is via a civilised timber staircase 20 metres from the main car park. The pool is deep, still and a playground for kayaks, day-tripping picnickers, and swimmers who call the surrounding Canebrake Pool campgrounds a temporary home during the high season of summer.
As part of the upper Margaret River, the critically endangered hairy marron is found in the waterway. Don’t be tempted to fish. Do take the time to experience the silence.
The cool slide of silt-silken river water against skin. Look up and see the tower of trees from river level and be reminded of the beauty that makes this region special.
