As from Friday 15th February, Cressbrook Dam has reopened for all recreational use, following its closure due to ex-Tropical Cyclone Oswald on the Australia Day long weekend.
Boating, day use and camping and land-based fishing are now permitted at the dam. The dam was closed to boating when water flowed over the spillway making it unsafe for this pursuit.
However, dam users are advised that any significant rainfall in the catchment area may result in the dam being closed under Council’s Emergency Action Plan.
Cooby Dam at Loveday Cove is now open for recreational uses including boating, however Cooby Dam wall remains closed.
