  • What a spectacular place, we were fortunate enough to see the dam spilling over on our first visit, we then ventured up top and had an ice cream and walked in the manicured grounds to see the dam from atop. Plenty of car parking and things to see along with some history. It was a pleasant visit and well worth seeing.
  • Great for a half day trip into the hinterland for tourists and locals. If there's been heavy rain within a day or two of visiting, then you're in for a treat with the torrent of water pouring off the dam. There's a cafe and a visitors learning centre at the top of the hill. Great walks around the area, and a park at the bottom for a picnic with the family. It's an easy, affordable, half day out.
  • Great visitor centre and picnic areas. Loved the view and walk across the top of the dam. Will go again and spend more time exploring the "other" side!!
  • Great place. Plenty of BBQ areas and open spaces great for families and lots of walking tracks. Small cafe and clean flushing toilets available in several areas
  • Love taking a trip out to the Hinze Dam. Great eats at the Cafe to reward yourself with after doing the walk across the dam and back. I thoroughly recommend the chocolate thick shakes and the grilled chicken burger...yum!
