Update: Burdekin Falls Dam planned closure

Burdekin Falls Dam

Due to weather conditions, the planned closure to Burdekin Falls Dam for road upgrade works will be extended until Friday, 7 May 2021.   

The closure applies to the entire site including camping grounds, lookouts and facilities so no onsite camping will be allowed during these dates. Signage will be in place on site and at Ravenswood and Mingela to advise of the closure.  

The roadway around the dam is a frequently used asset and like any asset, requires maintenance.  

The upgrade works will ensure the road can withstand weather impacts and erosion, improve the conditions of the road for our contractors and visitors, and ensure access and transport around the site is safe.  

We understand Burdekin Falls Dam is a popular holiday destination and we have scheduled the works to avoid peak visitor periods including Easter school holidays and the winter months when camping is highly popular.  

We are also aware that many residents use the roads around the dam and traverse the spillway to travel to Collinsville throughout year. By conducting the works now while the spillway road is most likely to be closed, we have tried to minimise the disruption to residents.  

Sunwater thanks the community for their patience as these works are undertaken.
