Big Brook Arboretum is an ‘open’ campground (without separated individual camp sites) that can accommodate tents, campervans, camper trailers and caravans. Picnic tables, barbecues and toilets are provided.
Dogs are permitted. They must be on a leash at all times.
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.
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 be made. Go to ´Find available sites at other campgrounds´ for the latest information on availability. We cannot give any guarantee of availability of camp sites and we cannot respond to enquiries for specific availability information. Be prepared with an alternative place to stay in case there is no suitable site available.
A number of trails weave their way through the arboretum where visitors can wander among the many plots of exotic trees that were planted here to see how they would grow and respond to the local soil and climate for their potential plantation value.
The Bibbulmun Track can also be accessed from this site.
The Big Brook Dam is located 3-kilometres from the camp site by vehicle along the Karri Forest Explorer Drive or 1-kilometre on foot via the Bibbulmun Track. The Big Brook Dam is a scenic place for a picnic and gas and wood barbecues are provided along with shelters, picnic tables and interpretive information. There is a sealed 4-kilometre trail which circumnavigates the dam which is suitable for strollers, wheelchairs and bicycles. A sandy beach has been created for safe swimming or visitors can try fishing for trout (see Fisheries website for details). Dogs are permitted on a leash but not around the beach area, or in the water.
