Introducing Lake Cressbrook - the Region's aquatic playground.

Located about 15 minutes drive east of Crows Nest, along Perserverance Dam Road, and a leisurely 50 km drive north east of Toowoomba, this place should be on your activity hot spot list.

Whether you're an angler, boatie or camper, or someone who just wants to chill, you'll find the lake and its surrounds perfect.

Cooking up a tantalising feast, to satisfy big outdoor appetites, is made easy with the free onsite barbecue facilities.

And, while that's happening, the lake's playground equipment will entertain the minimes for ages. 

For older family members, there's a volleyball court to enjoy.

If you're heading out to the lake, remember to check the Lake Cressbrook page to confirm the current fire ban status.

Fire bans in this area are reviewed weekly.

Gates to Lake Cressbrook open at certain times throughout the year.

Summer opening hours are 6am-8pm (September-April) and Winter opening hours are 7am-6pm (May-August).
