Picnic Grounds:
Visitor Centre, Bindoon -
The shady gazebo and picnic tables, next to the Information Centre, are ideal if you've just bought food from the shops opposite and want somewhere to eat. Clean toilets and drinking water available.

Clune Park - Just north of Bindoon townsite on the Great Northern Highway and only a short distance from the shops. This is the place to stop if you want to give the children a break on the modern skill-testing swings, monkey bars and other physical challenges. Well maintained toilets, gardens and plenty of space. A skate park and Rotunda have recently been constructed. BBQ's available.

Spoonbill Lake - Get away from the traffic and spot the birdlife at this creek-fed lake in Upper Chittering. Wood and black ducks, dabchicks and waders can usually be seen. Turn off the Great Northern Highway at Hart Drive. There is easy access to the grassed waters edge for 2-wheel drive vehicles.

Blackboy Ridge - Plenty of tables and some grand walks around, up and over this 64 hectare reserve, rich in wildflowers and views across the Brockman River flats. Winter creeks make this pristine, tree-clad hideaway on Chittering Road a special place for young and old.

Julimar Lookout - If you're taking the forest road to or from Toodyay, this is the place to absorb the splendid scenery you've encountered, or about to savour. Turn off the Julimar Road near the junction with the Chittering Road, where you'll also find picnic tables by the river. It is well signposted.
