Gordonbrook Dam is the sole water supply for Kingaroy and a peaceful spot to unwind. Originally built in 1941 as a water supply for the Royal Australian Air Force Training Base during WWII, the dam wall was raised in 1987 to inundate an area of 229 hectares – the dam we have today.
Take in the beautiful dam views from the viewing platform or a variety of walking tracks along the waters edge. Enjoy a picnic at the tables provided and use the wood fired barbecues.
The dam provides a haven for over 100 different species of birds. Bring your binoculars and camera to record sightings. The area is a significant migratory water bird site with sightings of Jacanas, White Breasted Sea Eagles and Pygmy Geese as well as the more common water birds such as Black Ducks and Egrets.
Camping is not permitted at the dam along with swimming, fishing, sailing and low horse-power boating due to blue/green algae in the water.
