Canebrake Pool is located in the Margaret River area and can be accessed from Margaret River via Osmington and Canebrake
Roads or from Busselton via Chapman Hill Rd and Canebrake Rd.
The road in is unsealed and usually the one coming from the Margaret River end can be very corrugated. Usually access from the Busselton end is smoother.
Facilities include toilets, seats, tables, fire pits and there may be skip bins in the camping area.
Although fire pits are available there is a fire prohibition season that is in force from December to April each year. Fire bans may be imposed
outside those times so watch for local signs. Firewood is sometimes made available here.
The pool is very pleasant to swim in during the warmer months but care should be taken and diving in to any natural pool is not a good idea
as there may be hidden obstacles.
The pool is home to the critically endangered hairy Marron. These are fully protected and must not be harmed in any way.
The site is run by DPaW but even so, dogs are permitted at this campsite as long as they are kept on a leash.
At present these campsites cannot be booked and are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
There are seven campsites available and an overflow area that will accommodate a few extra campers. Most sites are large enough to accommodate caravans.
A little south of Canebrake Pool on Osmington Road (just east of the T junction) is a lovely small bush church.
Generators are not permitted at this campsite.
