Visited on Tuesday 8th May. Stop at the lookout and take in the view of Clyde township below as well as the dam behind you and the Power Station beside the spillway. There is an info board giving details of the Dam and Power Station.

Great picnic spot with plenty of fun for the whole family. There's swimming, boating, body boarding and just plain relaxing. Only negative is the excessive speed and antics of the jet skiers. Would be great to have an enforced speed limit.

The Clyde Dam is at one end of Lake Dunstan. It’s quite large and from the look out you can see the Dam and upper parts of the lake. I found the lake drive to the dam really beautiful.

A very substantial dam above Clyde, an excellant view obtained from the road going to Cromwell as well as the lake behind. The lake is great for water sports although the water can be cold,

Took drive out here based on information in travel brochure. Museum closed as volunteers only man place. Few historic buildings but certainly not like how brochure read. Had lunch at Oliver's bar menu. Bit expensive for what we got. Wouldn't waste time going here again....More
