Information

Situated in dry Red Ironbark forest on gravelly clay by an unexpectedly large, attractive dam.
The picnic facilities (2 benches, 2 BBQs) are contained within a small fenced enclosure just above the dam wall. Informal bush camping sites are available further up around the dam.
Thin shade from Ironbark with a minimal understory. Wildflowers are prolific in spring.
Horesriding is popular, encouraging flies.
