Cordeaux Dam

Landmarks and Buildings

Remarkable for its Egyptian inspired architecture, a visit to Cordeaux Dam is like stepping back in time. Massive Egyptian style stone gateways guard the entrance to the dam wall, and the leafy picnic grounds feature stands of tall pine trees and other reminders of past times. Cordeaux is one of four dams that make up the Upper Nepean water supply scheme south of Sydney on the Illawarra Plateau.

Facilities include picnic shelters, electric barbecues, drinking water, toilets, disabled toilets, playground and viewing areas.

Cordeaux Dam may be impacted by bushfires in the region. Please note that conditions in Wollondilly may change over the Christmas period. Before undertaking any travel, please visit the NSW Rural Fire Service website to check affected areas and road closures.
