Perth Dams

Our Perth dams are not only a valued source of fresh water but are also the perfect location for a family day out. We’re fortunate enough to have several dams in Perth, many of which have been designed with public use in mind and landscaped to accommodate families, friends and individuals wanting to make use of the picturesque outdoor setting.

Plan a day out at one of the Perth dams listed below and be rewarded with attractive picnic spots, barbeque facilities, recreational play areas, walking trails and of course, spectacular views. The dams of Perth also offer visitors a glimpse into the past and an opportunity to learn a little about WA’s history, as many of the dams were constructed in Perth’s early days and played an important economic role as well as serving the region need for water.

What are you waiting for? Pack a picnic, round up the family and make your way to one of these stunning Perth dams for a day out under the sun, with a view that’s guaranteed to take your breath away.
