Carcoar Lake and Dam

Bathurst, New South Wales, Australia

The Carcoar Dam is located about seven kilometres from the historic village of Carcoar, near Blayney and Bathurst in New South Wales. Built in 1970, the dam has a surface of approximately 385 hectares and averages 20 metres depth.  It is the collection point for the Belubula River system and is stocked with Golden Perch, Murray Cod, Rainbow Trout and Silver Perch, as well as being a renowned redfin fishing spot.The dam is a great place for picnics, swimming, fishing, water skiing, wind surfing, sailing and boating, with a concrete ramp available. There are also facilities for barbecues and camping or caravaning, however it is best to stake your claim early for these, as they are very popular during peak times. A ranger is on site.
