Serpentine DamSerpentine Dam

The dam is a part of Serpentine National Park. 

Have a family lunch in the large picnic area with an adjoining playground. You are welcome to use the free gas barbecues located in the grassed lower picnic area downstream of the dam wall.

If you prefer a relaxed indoor setting, try the restaurant near the main car park for a casual meal.

Enjoy a nature walk on the marked trails and visit the scenic lookouts. If you like bird-watching, search for kookaburras, black cockatoos, parrots, magpies, and wrens.

Serpentine Dam is open daily but times are seasonal, please refer to the Parks and Wildlife WA website for more information or Perth Hills Armadale Visitor Centre on (08) 9394 5410.
