The Borumba Dam has recently undergone some changes to improve facilities for the public, to meet increased demand from boat users.
The Dam is a popular spot for recreational water sport activities, as well as camping, fishing, barbequing, kayaking, and bush walking.
Over 120,000 people visit the Dam each year, making the most of the recreational and water facilities.
A new, wider boat ramp has been designed to allow safer boat trailer access with dedicated rigging and de-rigging areas adjacent to the ramp and entrance to the ramp being added.
General day-use parking is still available for the public.
The car park bitumen was resealed throughout June this year, and the picnic shelters and tables were refurbished, including a fresh coat of paint and extensive cleaning.
Car park line marking has recently been completed, along with the installation of safety bollards and an upgrade of the boat ramp entrance.
All work is expected to be completed this week.
Borumba Dam is located just south of Gympie, and is currently sitting at one hundred percent capacity, an ideal time for water sport activities.
The Dam was originally constructed in 1963, undergoing an expansion in 1997, and can hold over 46,000 megalitres of water.
The recreation site is generally open from 6am-6pm and those wishing to visit the Dam are encouraged to check the Seqwater website (www.seqwater.com.au) to view the Public Notices or Recreational Information before visiting.
