Burdekin Falls Dam on Lake Dalrymple is 120 km south of Mingela and is the largest dam in Queensland. At full capacity the dam holds 1,860,000 ML; four times the capacity of Sydney Harbour.


A camping area is located on Burdekin Falls Dam Road near the dam wall on the north side of the Burdekin River. Camping facilities are operated by Sunwater and include powered and unpowered sites, hot showers and a dump point.

No prebooking is required, however the park gets very busy in holiday periods, as the Dam is also a popular spot for canoeing, sailing and waterskiing. For everyone’s enjoyment and safety, pets are required to be on a leash.

A Fishing Permit is required to fish in the dam, and can be purchased online.
