A great walk around the grounds and also right out across the dam to the other side. Beautiful views of surrounding mountains. Very good visual history details and interactive IT. Lots on offer at the View Café - food, drinks and souvenirs.

If you like water, then you will like this place. Nice cafe for a meal. Toilets are at the same place as the cafe along with the information centre. Good car park with ample motorbike parks and lots of clearance for handicap parking.

A 30mins drive from Pacific Fair, Gold Coast. Fairly easy drive. Cafe has a view of the park and the dam. The cafe also serves fresh muffins, which is highly commendable! Well done!

You can enjoy walking or cycling at the dam location. Whether you take a picnic or go for a leisurely meal with friends over wine/coffee it is a beautiful and tranquil spot, a short trip from the coast. Well worth the trip.

Great view of the dam. There is a cafe where you can get a drink and food. There’s a small interpretive centre on the building of the dam. You can walk over the dam wall.
