Designed to divert and regulate the flow of water from the Ord River into the Ord Irrigation area. The dam consists of 20 radial gates mounted within a concrete framework and spillway structure. The water is gravity fed into channels to service the area to the north of the town and is pumped into the Packsaddle Plains area to the south. The dam also forms part of the Victoria Highway.
Lions Park Picnic Area Take a drive out over the Diversion Dam and turn right after Packsaddle Road, into the track behind the Information Bay. Here you will find a great spot to take photos of the dam, have a picnic or launch your boat. No swimming due to the presence of saltwater crocodiles.
