Information

Fogg Dam is part of the Fogg Dam Conservation Reserve and is located approximately 65 km east of Darwin along the Arnhem Highway. The dam was built in the mid 1950's to provide irrigation for the Humpty Doo Rice Project. By the time the project had failed, Fogg Dam had become a haven for a large variety of wildlife. There are a number of easy walks that will take you through woodlands at the edge of floodplains, along the dam wall, as well as a monsoon forest. Take your camera and binoculars to photograph and view the large variety of birds and plant life.
