Additional information about camping at Wuruma Dam

Sunwater relocated the campsite at Wuruma Dam, QLD to near the dam wall and spillway, 2.6 km south of the old site. Recreational day use at the foreshore and boat ramp will continue. 

The GPS coordinates for the new designated camping site are: 25 11 48.9 S 150 59 24.5 E

Why the change?

The change is due to health and safety of dam visitors and employees, as well as increasing space, especially during peak periods.

The new site provides 40 designated, equally sized, clearly marked camping spaces on flat terrain away from trees and the foreshore, for free. It opened March 11, 2019, but you can camp at old bush camping area near the boat ramp until April 1, 2019.

No bookings are required and you are restricted to maximum stays of three weeks in any four week block. 

What facilities are there?

  • A toilet block (two male and three female)
  • Scenic look-out
  • Lake-side walking track
  • Picnic tables
