    The dam is a great place to visit and is educational for the students. Everyone should be aware of where their precious water comes from and how the process is managed. By the way, the cafeteria there is the View Cafe and is well worth a try. I had the scone and the others had the fish and chips. Meals are generous (ladies should share the f and c) and the staff are just so nice and helpful. Great experience.

    This is such a nice place for food and a nice walk with lots of little trails. If you feel up to it too you can take the mounting bike track and test your skills. but remember it's the commonwealth games track so if you take kids take your time our scout it first. Bike track is located at the far end of the wall a nice ride along the wall with an awesome view.

    Great engineering structure with associated public areas and fantastic cafe. Walking and bike trails make for a fantastic experience. Looks spectacular when the spill way is flowing. Well worth the drive to see our huge Gold Coast water storage.

    Well organized visitors place. Amazing views. Impressive dam. We drove from Broadbeach and it was such an enjoyable 40 minutes. If you have 3 hours just go there for a refreshing trip.
