Im guessing to the national park - from there it goes to a pipehead dam and the main dam. Im guessing the dams are protected by a 2km RPZ and the feeder creeks for the dam will be catchment protected areas

your a bit light on with deatails though

g'day Barry,

There's one sure way to find out!!!

Don't forget to post the trek notes when your done.....

Not sure about upstream, but in that part of the river I wouldn't think it would be too far. An old fishing mate walked up there chasing Trout about fifteen years ago and said it was mostly all fenced off pasture.

Many, many years ago an old mate I used to go hunting with reckons he followed the serpy river down from Albany hwy. The river (more a dried out creek bed that far up) is a few? km's before the north bannister road house - not sure how many km's but there used to be a sign on the culvert.

hope that is of some help, Keith

Thank you for your replies ...
Hi, I have done from the pipe head to Jarradale and then to the falls, I wanted or will go from Harvey Estuary and then up I was wondering if any one had been up there, I should think it would be ok for a few Kilometres and then ditch the canoe and walk the bank until it spreads out , I would like to make the lake, so I will make it in winter..

I live on it at Serpentine. You cannot go far upstream past Lake Goegrup? (Willy's Lake) which is the lake just past Riverside Gardens and also visible from Lakes Road as well as from the bridge over the river on Lakes Road just past Gordon Road when you head towards North Dandalup from Mandurah. You enter the river from the Peel Inlet, not the Harvey Estuary, just to the left of the old mill going upstream and also to the left of the Murray River entry point. You go under the Barraghup Bridge then you are not far from the Lake which is pretty shallow in parts. At the opposite end of the lake you go under the bridge on Lakes Road and after that it gets pretty narrow and shallow, with parts dried out and others full of logs, etc. If you get off the Freeway at Karnup Road and head East until you get to the River Road intersection where the road crosses the river you will see what I mean. It is not much more than a drain this time of the year.
