Close to town and well worth the drive. Take your own food and drinks as there wasn't a shop. Trip to Sapphire was also well worth the effort.

Liked the vast expanse of water. The land is very dry though even though there was flooding earlier this year. Locals friendly.

though a very popular destination for boaters, fishermen and those wanting a feed of red claw I prefer to see my children in the water not mud

We stayed at the discovery park near the lake and so went down to check out the dam. It is a great place to go for a walk and check out the stunning views especially from the park above the wall. If you are staying in emerald it really does not take long to get there so take the drive out.

Was I surprise to find that really nice and quiet pic-nic area on my way to Emerald. The place has many tables, toilets, a small beach right besides the lake form by the dam. Nice place to spend a few hours or a day.
