Waroona, WA

Situated 112 kilometres or an hour and a half’s drive south of Perth, the town of Waroona is at the centre of a forestry, dairying and potato farming region.


Waroona Shire stretches from the Indian Ocean, across plains enriched with irrigation waters, over the Darling Range’s massive granite outcrops and magnificent views, to the forest, with majestic old jarrah trees leading right down to the Murray River. The still pools and contrasting rapids of the Murray River offer canoeists a challenging battle with nature.

Waroona Dam, also known as Lake Navarino, covers some 200 hectares of water. It is used extensively for recreation. Power boating is permitted and the area is very popular for water ski activities. Fishing is also a major attraction, with marron, trout and perch abounding.

The Vision Splendid Gardens are a great place for a picnic with thousands of trees, shrubs and flowering plants on display.
