Pinnacle, Mackay Area
Teemburra Dam is situated in the picturesque Pioneer Valley approximately 50 kilometres west of Mackay City on a fully sealed road. The dam was constructed in 1997 to cope with the increasing demand for town water storage and irrigation purposes. The dam itself has a surface area of 1040 hectares, an average depth of 14.2 metres and holds 147 500 mega litres of water at full capacity.
The dam is stocked by a local fish stocking group MAFSA with Sooty Grunter and Barramundi, who have also set up their own community hatchery to breed Sooty Grunter. A 25 horse power limit applies to all boats here with no water skiing allowed. A single lane concrete ramp is provided.
There is no camping allowed at the dam, however accommodation can be found in Finch Hatton Gorge, Eungella National Park and Kinchant Dam.
A Stocked Impoundment Permit (SIP) is required to fish at Teemburra Dam.
