Bjelke-Petersen Dam

Murgon, South Burnett Area

Picnic areas, barbecues, a general store, a caravan and recreation park and a boat ramp with a large car park make this the ideal place to relax for a day or extended stay.

Bjelke-Petersen Dam covers 2,500 hectares, and holds 1,450,000 megalitres of water, which is used for irrigation and water supply to the towns of Murgon and Cherbourg.

Koalas, wallabies and kangaroos can be seen around the lake while the birdlife includes black swans, ducks, pelicans and cormorants.

Bjelke-Petersen Dam is a popular fesh water fishing spot. A permit (obtainable from the kiosk) is required. The dam is routinely stocked with Golden Perch (or Yellowbelly), Australian Bass and Silver Perch and you can also catch red claw (no permit required).
