Great stroll around the Dam. Unfortunately we were at the Big Brook Dam for a funeral what a great scenery for a sad day

Had a lovely afternoon at Big Brook with our family. Such a beautiful spot for a picnic or a stroll. Kids loved running around in the water.

On what was a lovely day, this is a great thing to do. A gorgeous walk on a bitumen track, so no prickles etc. Took out two spaniels who had a wonderful time as well.

It's a nice 4km walk around the dam on sealed pathway. Good for walking running or cycling. Quite a few look out points too.

Took our coffees up to the dam and had a small walk along the path. Would be very nice in summer with its small beach and grassed area.

We arrived here after a nice lunch close by and the kids wanted to cool off in the water. We did not expect the nice sandy beach there and the great temperature of the water.

This is a lovely spot tucked away with a small beach. It was a surprise to find that. Dogs are not allowed on the beach.
