At the town’s southern entrance lies the picturesque Tambo Dam and parklands. A habitat for water birds and wildlife, a place for rest and relaxation.

Locals and visitors alike enjoy the grassy areas for picnics and make use of the barbecues provided. Pathways wind through the forest parkland connecting into a nature walk along the Barcoo River. Exercise enthusiasts can make use of the outdoor gym equipment for a complete workout.

In summertime, the community makes use of this body of water for skiing, canoeing and tobogganing. Swimming is also a popular past time.

Spectacular sunrises reflected in the water can be viewed and the dam is a bird watchers paradise with black swans and cygnets to be seen at certain times of the year. Pelicans also make this area home for a few weeks every year. Brolgas can often be found around the waters edge.

Pull up, rest, relax and enjoy a break in the naturally landscaped surrounds.
