Diversion Dam

Natural Attractions

Kununurra’s Diversion Dam is part of the Ord Irrigation Scheme designed to harness the massive volume of water that flows down the Ord River for use in farming.

Located about six kilometres west of the town, the dam diverts and regulates water from the Ord River into the irrigation area.

On a visit to the Diversion Dam you can see 20 radial gates mounted within a concrete framework and spillway structure. The irrigation system relies on gravity to pull the water into channels which then flow to farms to the north and south of the town.

Above the Diversion Dam, Lake Kununurra is formed which is popular for all kinds of water sports including cruising, boating, fishing, and jet skiing.

The Diversion Dam is a few minutes drive from the centre of Kununurra.
