Address: Moogerah lake
Just outside of Aratula is the Moogerah National Park with excellent Picnic facilities. Also located just beside Moogerah Caravan Park and Moogerah Cafe.
As well as the barbecues and picnic areas available at Lake Moogerah Caravan Park there are a number of barbecues, covered picnic tables, toilet facilities and playgrounds on the opposite side of the lake at Haig Park. This side also provides access to the dam wall. Across the wall is Mount Edwards – a walking trail and hike. The road uphill behind the old kiosk (now a house) leads to a lookout and downhill to a further picnic area and playground at the bottom of the wall on the banks of Reynolds Creek.
At the Lake Moogerah Caravan Park, kayaks, fishing tinnies and paddle boards are available for hire. They also sell live bait if you feel like going for a fish whilst relaxing on the shores of the Lake. Stay at the Caravan Park either in your caravan or tent and choose between powered or un-powered sites.
The Moogerah Dam is a mass concrete double curvature arch dam with a un-gated spillway across the Reynolds Creek that is located in the South East region of Queensland. Moogerah Dam provides irrigation supplies to landholders along Reynolds Creek and also supplies water to Warrill Creek and Warrill Valley farmers through a series of redirections. It is located on Reynolds Creek near Boonah, and was completed in 1961. The Moogerah dam is un-gated which means when it reaches one hundred percent capacity, the water flows over the spillway and safely out of the dam.
Lake Moogerah is a beautiful, relaxing place to visit. Lake Moogerah is also perfect for kayaking, boating, waterskiing, fishing and swimming.
Permits are not required for boating on the lake; however, a SIPS permit is required for fishing at Lake Moogerah.
