Serpentine Pipehead Dam

Smaller than Serpentine Dam, Pipehead Dam is set in natural bush in the Serpentine National Park with spots to have lunch in a cleared gravel picnic area surrounded by shady native plants. There is also a nearby playground for kids.

Walk down the steps to the recreation lake and enjoy hours of fun sailing model boats or watching the native birdlife.

Take a nature walk on the marked trails or a trip to the Serpentine Falls for a picnic lunch with the spectacular waterfall behind you. 

Serpentine Pipehead Dam is open daily but times are seasonal, please check the Parks and Wildlife Service website for more information or call (08) 9525 2128.
