Lake Kepwari transformation
Collie’s Lake Kepwari, formerly an open-cut coalmine, has been transformed into a water-based tourism hub, featuring areas for boating, water-skiing, swimming, camping and picnicking.
Construction on the facilities has seen the development of a dual lane boat ramp, designated parking for boat trailers and sealed accessible pathways throughout the site.
The $5.2 million development of the new campground and boating facilities, opened by WA Premier the Hon Mark McGowan MLA, is part of a much larger investment by the State Government in infrastructure for parks and forests in the Collie region. Other projects implemented or planned as part of an overall plan to make the region a new nature-based, water sports tourism hub include including a mega mural at Wellington Dam, and mountain bike, walk trails and drive trails through the Collie River Valley and Ferguson Valley.
The Burra campground at Lake Kepwari has 21 campsites suited to all types of campers, with a second campground to be constructed soon on the northern lakeshore to accommodate visitor demand.
Bookings for camping, water sports and boating are now open.
