About this park
This park features two quiet campgrounds beside Carey Brook. They provide a good base to enjoy the tranquil natural surroundings. Wake up in the forest and sip your camp coffee to the sounds of the brook bubbling by. After your brew, lace up your hiking boots and take a bushwalk. Or grab your binoculars and go birdwatching. Both are great ways to experience the forest of marri, jarrah and groves of peppermint and sheoak.
Get spirited away on the walk trail that passes alongside the brook and through the forest. It will lead you to the mysterious Goblin Swamp. The mass of knotted paperbarks gives this a spooky, fairytale feel. It’s quite an experience in the depth of winter, when the cold wind blows! In different lights the swamp takes on eerie forms. It’s a creative photographer’s dream. Let Hawke National Park cast its spell on you!
Why not use Hawke National Park as your base to explore the surrounding attractions of Donnelly Boat Landing in D’Entrecasteaux National Park or Beedelup Falls in Greater Beedelup National Park. You can camp in one of two campgrounds – Grasstree Hollow or Snottygobble Loop. Both campgrounds are nestled on the banks of Carey Brook, a crystal clear stream that flows into the Donnelly River. You can also visit the mysterious Goblin Swamp – best seen in the depths of winter when the cold wind blows. It’s a 5km return walk to the swamp from Grasstree Hollow or a 3km return walk from Snottygobble Loop. If you prefer a shorter walk, can park at the Goblin carpark for a 1km walk to see if you can see the goblins.
