Open or closed status and allowed activities on lakes and dams

Boat on dam
Our lakes and dams are wonderful places to enjoy a wide range of recreation activities. But it's important to plan ahead before visiting a lake or dam in our region. As these are outdoor recreation areas they may be affected by weather and issues such as algae outbreaks. When planning your visit remember to check:

Lake Cooby

Open or closed status

At certain times we may need to close a lake area for your safety. If a closure occurs, the area that is unable to be accessed will be marked below with a cross.

 

Please be advised that land based activities ONLY can be enjoyed once again. Loveday Cove and the walking track between Loveday Cove and the dam wall will be closed until further notice. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.
