Lake Kepwari - Formerly a mine and now is filled with water from the Collie River, perfect for water-based activities and lakeside camping.

The lake is located within the south-west region of Western Australia, 10km south-east of Collie.

The name Lake Kepwari comes from the local Wiilman language ‘Kepwari’ meaning ‘playing in water’.

There are parking bays, accessible toilets and barbecue shelters by the lake. Boating and water skiing There is a designated water ski area on the lake with a boat ramp and parking for boat trailers.

For boating regulations and safety information please check the Department of Transport water ski information.
