Built in 1986 to supplement the Pemberton town and Trout
Hatchery water supplies, Big Brook Dam now provides a
fantastic opportunity for recreational activities. The calm waters
of the dam make it a great place for kids to swim. Visitors can
picnic or have a barbecue near the ‘beach’ or canoe on the
dam while enjoying the scenery. There is a 3.5-kilometre sealed
walk trail around the dam which is suitable for wheelchairs
and prams. A longer walk trail links the dam with the Big
Brook Arboretum. There is also great trout and marron fishing
in season. Other popular activities include birdwatching and
photography. Sheltered gas and wood barbecues are provided
and dogs are permitted on a leash.
