Dam Wall Lookout

There is a small carpark next to the dam wall and spillway. There is no designated disabled parking bays in this area.

The carpark is sealed and is on reasonably level ground. The dam wall lookout can be accessed from the carpark via a ‘pedestrians only’ service road over the spillway entrance to the lookout area. The pedestrian entrance next to the gate is approximately 900mm wide and the surface of the road and the lookout area is reasonably level. Some sections of the surface are sealed while others consist of compacted finely crushed rock.
