Big Brook Dam
Directions - Big Brook Dam is a ten minute drive from the centre of Pemberton and the way there is well signed. From the main strip in town head east along Vasse Hwy until you reach a left turn for Golf Links Rd. Follow this road until you reach a left turn on Mullineaux Rd then take Percival Rd followed by Range Rd.
The Hike - Continuing on after my visits to Mount Chudalup and Lane Poole Falls, the next stop on my Tour de Northcliffe and Pemberton was a place I had visited a few months earlier, albeit in different circumstances. Big Brook Dam is one of the highlights of the Bibbulmun Track on the day into or out of Pemberton and my lasting memory from my visit here in June was that it was a very enjoyable location but the tarmac paths were murder on my already sore feet. I have returned though with the goal of just enjoying the entire loop walk with a lighter pack and fresh legs. This hike had been on the to-hike list well before my visit here in June so it was nice to finally get stuck into it and with fantastic weather greeting me on this lovely spring day.
