Information

Burnett River Dam was opened in 2005 after a 2 year construction for irrigation purposes. The impoundment created by the dam is called Lake Paradise. The dam is named for the ghost town of Paradise, which is now under water following construction. In 2019, concerns about the structural stability of the dam resulted in the water levels being lowered. Construction started in May 2020 to lower the dam wall height by 5 metres. Recreational use has been slightly modified as a result of water lowering however it is still popular with visitors who can still enjoy kayaking, SUP and fishing, however large boating is no longer practical.
