Tinaroo Falls Dam was constructed in 1958 on Barron River. It holds 436 500 mega liters of water, has an average depth of 13 meters and has a surface area of 3360 hectares.
The dam wall is mass gravity concrete construction that is 45 meters high, 533 meters long and 35 meters thick at the base. The resulting Lake Tinaroo extends 15 kilometers upstream with a shoreline of approximately 210 km of excellent fishing at the foot of your vacation rental accommodations.
For water lovers, the opportunities are endless with boating, water skiing, white water rafting, sailing and fishing on the doorstep of your vacation rentals. Lake Tinaroo is after all, the home of Australia’s BIG BARRA!! Barramundi can be caught all year round as this is a stocked impoundment that is not subject to seasonal closures, but November to March is best. Other species include sleepy cod, archer fish, bony bream, saratoga, and silver perch, and recent releases of mangrove jack fingerlings will see them maturing as good target species over the next few years. While shore fishing, particularly in the drowned timber areas on the northern and eastern shores, is productive, visitors can also hire boats at Lake Tinaroo Terraces
The wilderness surrounding your vacation rentals accommodation and the dam fed lake is diverse and includes dense rainforest, pine tree plantations and Australian scrub. The birdlife is spectacular; platypuses and kangaroos are abundant and Lake Tinaroo is also regarded as one of the world’s best Barramundi fishing spots.
