Very tranquil and the river is surprisingly longer than envisaged as we took the track that follows it along its meandering upper reaches, wish we had a canoe ;)

Greenough River Waigen Lakes. Beautiful spot but the river was closed for fishing or swimming. Signs advising of safety risk. The beach was nice but wasnt a good day for fishing.

Enjoy the view, wildlife and peace. Lovely place for a walk. Not too taxing and you can walk as far as you want.

Our SUVs navigated the hard-packed bar without difficulty, parking on the high point south of the river. Although we’ve visited (and fished) this location many, many times, the loud shriek of the little blowholes still caught us by surprise. In past decades, the point has...More

Liked fishing in river and sitting in big sandbar between beach and river. Disliked 4wd 's who sped way too fast on beach. Good fishing spot. Beach a bit rough but river good to paddle for kids.
