Information

Ophthalmia Dam is 18km out of town. Built in 1981 to recharge the underground aquifers supplying Newman's water, it has a capacity of 31-million cubic metres of water. This is a great spot for lunch and a swim, but no camping is allowed. The dam is a popular sailing venue for Newman residents.
