Maddock Park (located off Mooloolah Connection Road) is a popular picnic spot. There are picnic tables, shelters, free BBQs, and a swimming area with sandy beach. If you’re looking for something more active Maddock Park is also a great starting point for paddling, bush walking, mountain biking and horse riding.
More picnic facilities can be found at Ornamental Wetlands (located off Steve Irwin Way).
For more information, download the Ewen Maddock Dam recreation guide.
Our catchments are home to a variety of wildlife. Snakes are an ever-present threat in the Australian landscape, particularly in the warmer months. If you encounter a snake, give it a wide berth and do no try to handle or move it in any way.
- leave the facilities as you found them. Do not cause damage to any property, flora or fauna
- take your rubbish with you or place litter in a bin if provided
- unless you are in an approved designated dog on leash area, leave your pets at home. Dogs and other domestic animals can disturb the wildlife that live in our natural areas.
