Goblin Swamp

Goblin Swamp Walk

Hawke National Park

DirectionsFrom the centre of Pemberton head south along Vasse Highway until you reach the turnoff where Vasse Highway heads right at the tourist information boards. Keep driving past Karri Valley Resort until you reach the left turn for Boat Landing Road. Follow this past the Carey Brook Campsite and turn into the Snottygobble Loop Campsite. Park near the visitor information shelter and walk down the hill until you reach the trail running parallel to Carey Brook. 

The Hike - With a visit to Pemberton to finish off the trails that I had left to add to the website, I put the Goblin Swamp Walk on the list mainly because of the name. Another factor was seeing the photos from official Explore Parks WA photographer, Bronwyn Wells, and deciding that it would be nice to discover what else was out here. Unfortunately this area was part of the early 2022 bushfire that hit most of Hawke National Park so when I arrived at the Snottygobble Loop Campground, it was obvious that this would be much the same as my visit to Yeagarup Dunes.
