The ‘Jewel in the crown of the Central West’, Wyangala Waters is a favourite picnic area and holiday destination. Relax in comfortable accommodation, camp on a powered site or an unpowered site in one of our many camping areas, take a bushwalk or cast a line for some fishing. Great boat ramps for launching the ski boat. Two rivers and the main dam area to water ski, fish and explore.
With a catchment area of 8,300 square kilometres and a dam capacity of 1,217,600 megalitres, the surface area of the dam is two and a half times the size of Sydney Harbour and is a favourite for all water sports.
Lake Wyangala is well-regarded as an excellent inland fishing spot. Catch silver and golden perch (yellow belly), catfish, Murray cod and the renowned brown and rainbow trout. There are many walking trails through the bush or go mountain bike riding. Canoe around the foreshores any time of year.
Throughout all the seasons, Wyangala Waters is great for jet-skiing, pleasure boating, sailing, windsailing, swimming and water skiing and not forgetting the playgrounds, bbq areas, and the room for the kids.
