Canebrake Pool

Star 0.0 (47 Google reviews)

Fresh water and isolation is one of the Margaret River region’s signature landscape narratives.
Canebrake Pool is far from being central or convenient: shoot off from town down Osmington way, and take the left hand turn for a long gravel road journey. The adventure is thrilling, for it is stunning.

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.

Very quiet and beautiful without any noisy families or young people.

Right in the heart of the Bush on the Margaret River, this place is spectacular. Only 9 unpowered sites with own tables and fire pits, makes this the perfect off grid camp trip. The amenities are simple, with Drop toilets only. At $9 per person. This place is just beautiful.

Try to visit this place when not too crowded. Neat and tidy. A perfect West Aussie bush retreat. Take a kayak if you can.
