We spent a very nice morning at the dam and surrounds. Pretty gardens and a nice walk up to the top of the dam if you don't mind a few stairs.

Harvey Dam is a lovely place to go for a walk, especially if you have dogs. The amphitheatre area is well set out and very pleasant, it's a steep climb up the steps to the top of the dam, but the view is worth the effort. Walking round the dam itself is good and the dogs love a splash in... More

You can walk across the dam wall and around the circuit, I found the views at the top of the... More

Can't fault the previous comments. The whole picnic area is well laid out, beautifully maintained and a perfect spot for family picnics. There are walking tracks through native flora as well as across the dam wall. Not too far out of Harvey either.
