Eungella Dam

Eungella, Mackay Area

Eungella Dam is a scenic lake fringed by rainforest, the ideal spot for boating and skiing with peaceful natural surrounds. Camping is by self-registration on-site. No motorbikes allowed. Fishing permits are required and can be obtained from local tackle shops and Mackay Tourism.

From the township of Eungella, take the Eungella Dam Road past Broken River. The last portion of the drive is unsealed, where the landscape turns from rainforest into high country farms. Beware of wandering stock as cows roam free along this road.

The dam is stocked with Sooty Grunter, Saratoga, Sleepy Cod and Barramundi and is renowned for producing oversized Sooty Grunter. There are no boating restrictions for the dam and small boats can be launched from the boat ramp.

Camping is permitted in the area with facilities available such as cold showers, toilets, barbecues and picnic tables. A second block of public toilets and more picnic tables can be found across the other side of the water, near the dam itself.

Access is by normal vehicle, some dirt road.

Self-registration station located at camping area toilet block, AUD5 per night.

Dogs on leashes allowed.
