This camping ground is an oasis in the desert. Built in the late 1800's as a source of water for the steam trains servicing the Goldfields. It is a great place for camping with good basic facilities, solid tables & benches, long drop toilets, coin...More

We visited Niagara Dam as part of a day-trip out of Kalgoorlie. To see the dam and the large lake was such a surprise in the dry bush. It was impressive. Public amenities include a toilet and a dump point. There were a few picnic...More

Spent our Easter break at this oasis in red dirt country. Kayaking in the dam. Plenty of marron in the nets and local sightseeing of nearby Kookynie where the horse greets you at the door.

Great area to visit extensive campgrounds. Toilets available. Many places to camp. Take your own firewood none available at the dam.

Apparently the small dam was built in 1898 in an attempt to store water for the masses of people flooding the area in search of gold. The construction is extremely solid and the surrounding area has plenty of good selfcontained camping spots. Bbqs drop toilets...More

We read about this in the local tourist material and took a look on the way to the near-by (and good) Kookynie ghost town. Yes, there's some water but if you come from somewhere that has water it probably won't impress you too much! Probably...More
