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
or on the water in a houseboat, take a bushwalk or cast a line for some fishing.
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 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.
Through the spring and summer
seasons, Wyangala Waters is great for jet-skiing, pleasure boating, sailing,
windsailing, swimming and water skiing.
All persons are reminded that there is a
Total Fire Ban
within Wyangala Waters State Park until the end of March.
