Driving Directions

18km east of Crows Nest at the end of Perseverance Dam Road.

Once you go through the gate at the waypoint, the going gets rather steep. Good practice dictates that if you are towing a caravan or your vehicle is heavy, it is safest to select a low gear to save overheating the brakes. If you do need to brake as well, do so intermittently to allow cooling of the brakes. Hot brakes fade just when you need them most.

Lake Cressbrook Picnic Area & Boat Ramp is a large grassy and shaded picnic area with plenty to do. If you are energetic there is the volleyball court. The boat ramp is bitumen all the way to the water.
Cast your line from the shore or go out in the boat to bring back a feed of Yellow Belly, Silver perch, Bass, Mary River Cod or Saratoga. Cook it fresh on the BBQs provided or stash it away in the freezer for later.

There is a limited weak Telstra signal in parts of the day area, but it is rather patchy and probably not much good for Internet.
