Cormorant Bay Wivenhoe Dam

South East Queensland

A 3.5km circuit commencing at a locked gate in the carpark area of Cormorant Bay, Wivenhoe Dam, just south of the dam wall. Drive past the old cafe and around the one-way road watching for the gate on your left. The lower track meanders along the lake, but not on the shore line, with views across the water, then a slight incline leads to a ridge which in turn leads back to the gate. The area is alive with birdlife. Some vegetation is still recovering from a bushfire. There are a couple of sections of pebbles which could be slippery. This is an easy walk suitable for all. Takes about 45 minutes.

Nice easy walk with no steep hills which is unusual for a dam walk. Great views of the water for at least half of the walk and then more filtered views for the rest. I measured just under 3km so a short walk.
