Sunrise Lake Coolmunda Queensland

Lake Coolmunda Queensland

Lake Coolmunda is at full capacity because of the rains. Sunrise is over the lake and amazing. It always surprises me that so many people camp on water shores with sunrise views such as this and never see them as they are all tucked up safe and asleep at Sunrise. This is my last day here and its an amazing sunrise and a very beautiful location right on the water.

The Coolmunda Dam is an earth–fill embankment dam with a gated spillway across the Macintyre Brook, a tributary of the Dumaresq River, that is located on Darling Downs in Queensland, Australia. The main purposes of the dam are for irrigation and potable water supply.

The dam is located approximately 13 km (8.1 mi) east of Inglewood, just off the Cunningham Highway. Two smaller creeks, Bracker Creek and Sandy Creek, also provide inflows to the reservoir.

Completed in 1968 the earth–fill dam structure is 20 metres high and 2,826 metres long. The 690-thousand-cubic-metre (24×106 cu ft) dam wall holds back the 69,000-megalitre (15×109 imp gal; 18×109 US gal) reservoir when at full capacity.

There is one boat ramp, three picnic areas with good facilities as well as a caravan park.[3] Free bush camping by the lake was once permitted. In 2013, a new camping area was opened to the public. There are no boating restrictions in place. Parts of the lake contain stretches of standing timber and along the northern bank there are submerged fence posts the demark a former creek bed. Eel-tailed catfish and spangled perch are found naturally in the lake’s waters and the Lake Coolmunda Restocking Group Inc. stocks it with murray codsilver perch and golden perch .A stocked impoundment permit is required to fish in the dam.  The dam is managed by SunWater
