The main road drives across the top of this dam, so slow down and enjoy a commanding view.

A small plaque midway, has a dedication to Philip Hickey.

Reece Dam has a really impressive [and tall] spillway. There is a hydro station just off the main road which runs across the dam wall. There are parking areas both sides of the dam. The drive there takes you through some some great west coast countryside.

Well worth the visit
Like most dams, this has spectacular views. The difference is this is on the main road
Worth stopping and spending the time to appreciate the structure

This dam was one of the last built. The view from the top of the dam (which is also the road - single lane with passing places) is quite good. I wouldn't make a big detour to see it, but if in the area it is worth a look.

We drove down the road to the power station, but there is nothing to see.

For us, the big plus was seeing a spotted tail quoll (heading for the hills, but in clear view for several seconds) near the turn-off to the lookout.

A nice spot to stop and stretch the legs. Also a good spot for a picnic lunch or a snack. There are 3 main areas to visit. The most spectacular is the viewing area with picnic table on the western side of the wall. The second is the dam wall, generating plant and spill way. The third is the boat ramp and Camping area on the eastern shore. The engineering and beauty of this manmade landscape is easy to appreciate.

Good view of a working hydro station. You can use the viewing spot or drive down to the dam wall. It is what you expect.

We travelled the longer way to Zeehan from the North via the Reece Dam. It is used for power in Tasmania

I worked on this project 30 years ago and my wife and I were taken back by the sheer design and beautiful surroundings of this dam
For me it was like stepping back in time and I hope that everyone who gets to see it appreciates the work that went into it

We decided to drive the circuit from Strahan back to Tullah via the Henty Dunes and then Reece Dam. The wall and power station provide a great stopping point to stretch your legs and admire the view. Plenty of safe vantage points and the road even goes down almost to the Power Station buildings below the dam wall itself.
