Burrinjuck Dam

Agri, Mining and Industry

The Burrinjuck Dam is heritage-listed and was built for irrigation in NSW before World War I and helped drive the economic development of the Riverina as a major food producing region.

Tourists and locals now enjoy the dam for water sports, bushwalking, birdwatching, and picnicking in 75 hectares of natural beauty. on the headwaters of the Murrumbidgee River, just 60 kms from the Yass Township.

With construction taking over more than 20 years to complete, Burrinjuck Dam remains one of the world’s largest irrigation dams, an engineering feat that provides water to the Murrumbidgee Irrigation Area for crops, river flows as well as town supplies.
