  • Large dam. Information centre provides valuable information on how the dam was built and the capacity of the dam over each stage. Lovely cafe too. Good parking. Take a hat - sun can be harsh!  more »
  • Not much to do at the Dam, but very well worth a visit if you are local, great views and hugely impressive parts!  more »
  • The dam proves great views and is the starting point for lovely walks. There is a cafe and visitor experience centre, and plenty of parking.  more »
  • Love taking a trip out to the Hinze Dam. Great eats at the Cafe to reward yourself after doing the walk across the dam and back. I thoroughly recommend the chocolate thick shakes and the grilled chicken burger...yum!
  • Wonderful place to relax, the little coffee shop is very nice. The food and drinks were very delicious and satisfactory. Whole family was very happy and will visit again very soon.
  • Lovely area, lawns for picnics or cafe if you like. Walk the wall for some beautiful views and info. There is also an interpretative center about the dam.
  • Nice place to go to if you're in the area, cafe's good also.
  • 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.
