+Tumbledown Creek bridge, Arthurs Lake

If you are intending to go to Arthurs Lake please note that Tumbledown Creek bridge which allows access to Little Lake and Gunns Lake is currently closed due to its deteriorating structural condition. This timber bridge was originally built nearly 15 years ago to provide access to transmission lines and has been left in place to allow recreational users access to Little Lake and Gunns Lake.

It is unlikely the adjacent ford will to be crossable until the lake level reduces in the mid-summer months. It’s estimated that high clearance vehicles can pass through the ford when Arthurs Lake water level is more than 1.8m below full supply level, however it will be up to individuals to assess whether conditions are appropriate to allow safe fording.

We thank you for your patience and if you have any question please contact Anna Blake

+Devils Gate Power Station refurbishment, Lake Barrington

From 29 October 2018 and continuing into August 2019, we will be carrying out upgrades on the Devils Gate Power Station.

The Devils Gate viewing platform will be closed to the general public for the duration of this project. There will also be increased traffic on Devils Gate Road and surrounding areas with possible short delays due to traffic management.

Devils Gate Dam will be on spill for the duration of this project and this may result in slightly increased water levels at Lake Barrington, after an initial lowering of water levels.

Published: 28 October 2018

New exclusion zone buoys have been installed at Devils Gate dam on Lake Barrington ahead of the power station upgrades.

For your own safety and the safety of our people, please obey all exclusion zone signs and buoys.

+Recreation upgrades at Bradys Lake

We are undertaking work at Bradys Lake to upgrade facilities, improve functionality and sustainability.  Old signage will be removed and new directional, campground, boat ramp and hazard signage will be installed.

The access road and tracks at the Woodwards Canal Campground and the campsite near the Bradys Dam wall will be upgraded and formalised with some closed to vehicle access.

To improve environmental management, vehicle access to Claypit Bay and Kangaroo Bay will be closed. The campground at Tunnel Bay has been levelled and gravelled and as a safety precaution, rocks have been placed to prevent vehicle access to the shoreline.

It is anticipated this work will be completed before Christmas 2018. We appreciate your patience and apologise for any inconvenience during the works.
