  • Visited recently for the first time, I was amazed at the beauty and serenity of the place. One thing though, "dont forget the Aeroguard" !!  more »
  • Great place for a get together and a swim if the weather permits. Picnic areas overlook water and BBQs are clean and easy to operate. Bit of a walk from car park where facilities and bins are located....  more »
  • We decided to do our 5 km walk here at the Dam. Magic - walking beside the dam - beautiful scenery of the Glasshouse Mountains in the distance. Well maintained and it is not strenuous at all. You can ...  more »

  • It is a beautiful place to visit with lovely views of the water. The only problem is that the water is too polluted to swim in in some areas so you need to check the signs to ensure that you are swimming in a safe area.
  • We came looking for Mooloola River National Park and never found it, so when we past a sign for Ewan Maddock Dam and in desperate need of a walk, we drove down the road – which is a bit unsealed at the end – but very manageable, we found an absolute gem. Everything for a reason they say and this was the reason. A gorgeous bushwalk with several trails, lovely floodplains with plenty of wildlife including an amazing array of butterflies and water dragons. Our favourite was spent watching a Lace Monitor for a while, before we left him in peace and continued our walk. There were a group of young people there on an organised outing getting ready to go off in canoes and we were slightly jealous – how lucky were they. There are no facilities here such as picnic area or toilets, this is wildlife and nature at its best, come prepared and enjoy.
  • excellent place to trail run, mountain biking and throw in some swimming and fishing
  • Beautiful walking tracks with a nice enclosed swimming area
  • Great for camping and private Events.
