Gordonbrook Dam

Kingaroy, South Burnett Area

The Dam is the sole source of water supply for Kingaroy; it was built in 1941 to provide water for the Royal Australian Air Force Training Base during WWII. In 1987 due to increased demand the dam wall was raised and the inundated area is now 229 hectares.

Take time to enjoy the beautiful views of the dam from either the viewing platform or the 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.
