Lake Belmore, the Aquatic Jewel of the Gulf Savannah has provided Croydon with a resource more precious than the gold – sparkling fresh water.
Situated less than 4 km from town on a fully sealed bitumen road, the earth wall dam was constructed in 1995 as the town's primary water supply. Prior to 1996, Croydon mainly obtained its water from a number of bores from mining pits, such as the Golden Butterfly, which with time were becoming dry.

The lake is stocked with Red Claw, Barramundi and Sooty Grunter with Black Bream occurring naturally. Barramundi and Sooty Grunter fingerlings are purchased and released into the lake every year to ensure that the seasonally unrestricted fishing is always fantastic. Size limits apply – Barramundi 60cm and Sooty Grunter 28cm.

The Croydon Fishing and Boating Club holds an annual Barra & Bream Fishing Competition.
