Blowering Dam

Natural Attractions

Famous as the site of the world water-speed record in 1978, Blowering Dam is one of the biggest dams in NSW. At three times the size of Sydney Harbour, Blowering Dam stores water released upstream for hydro-electricity generation in the Snowy Mountains Scheme and for irrigation.

The reservoir is a popular spot for all water sports, including skiing, jet skis, sailing, canoeing and swimming. Several boat ramps are available at camping grounds around the lake foreshore. The dam is stocked with Murray cod, golden perch and silver perch. Trout and other fish species are present.

The dam and its tributaries are closed to trout fishing between the June and October long weekends.

The access road to Blowering Dam is a short drive south of Tumut.
