Ewen Maddock Dam is home to more than 9km of multi-use trails that are shared between walkers, bike riders and horse riders.
The main trail from Maddock Park to Gympie Street North is multi-use, while the boardwalk and the narrow walking tracks near Maddock Park are reserved for walking only.
For your safety and for the safety of others, please obey all signage on the trails including give way instructions. On multi-use trails, all users give way to horse riders, and mountain bike riders give way to pedestrians.
The Ornamental Wetlands, on the southern side of the lake, provide an opportunity to better understand the important role our wetlands play in the water catchment story. Picnic tables and parking facilities are also available.
