Canebrake Pool is in Jarrah-marri forest on the upper reaches of Margaret River in Rapids Conservation Park. The river is home to the unique species of marron called the hairy marron, found only in the Margaret River. (The hairy marron is critically endangered - fishing for them at Canebrake Pool is prohibited. Go to www.fish.wa.gov.au for more information).
There are seven designated camping sites, most are suitable for a small van or camper trailer.
A picnic area on the banks of the pool provides excellent fresh water swimming and canoeing.
Long-drop sealed vault toilets are provided
Campfires are usually permitted, in the provided fire rings only, between April 15 and November 30 but fire restrictions may be imposed at any time and without notice. Bring your own firewood. When fire restrictions are in place campfires must not be lit and any appliance powered by burning solid fuel must not be used. Always comply with any instructions at campgrounds and parks.
Campers´ own liquid or gas fuel barbeques, stoves and heaters can be used at any time, unless a total fire ban has been declared (see Department of Fire and Emergency Services).
Bookings cannot me made.
The campground, and the whole of the South West Capes area, is very popular during school holidays and weekends from October to April, particularly public holiday weekends. Be prepared with an alternative place to stay at these times in case the campground is full.
We cannot give any guarantee of availability of camp sites and we cannot respond to enquiries for specific availability information. Go to `when and where bookings cannot be made` for more information.
