Hinze Dam reopens to public
After nearly four years under construction, Hinze Dam on the Gold Coast has reopened to the public.
The $395 million Hinze Dam Stage Three upgrade saw the dam wall raised by 15 metres, doubling the dam’s capacity and providing increased water security and flood mitigation.
Visitors are encouraged to visit the dam and explore the new facilities which include a state-of-the-art Interpretive Centre, lakeside parks, walking and mountain bike trails, increased car parking, toilet facilities and barbeque areas for public use.
Two new boat ramps have also been constructed. Currently the Western Boat Ramp is open for use with the Eastern ramp due to open soon.
