  • Tallies Dam is a fine enough spot for a paddle or a fish, but a little out of the way and the overflowing garbage skips made for a funky odour. The beaches or streams in the Kangaroo Valley area are a...  more »

  • A great view on the Dam is accessible after a 2km return walk. Follow the path called Three views. Great place!
  • A scenic spot to canoe, there are washroom facilities, parking, picnic tables, and walking paths to explore the dam and surround area. There is signage to explain how the dam fits in the overall waterway management system of the region.
  • A beautiful area for a picnic or to go for a paddle. There are plenty of great campsites up and down the river, from as near as 2km from the dam to 20km distant, and National Parks have installed toilets at a number of them. The sea of dead trees up Bundanoon Creek, and Shoalhaven Gorge, are quite eerie to see.
  • i like it here best in the cooler months, the campsites are empty and the morning mists are surreal to paddle through
