Clarrie Hall Dam - Murwillumbah

Clarrie Hall Dam

Heading west of Murwillumbah, through Uki, and turning south on the Doon Doon Road, takes you to the Clarrie Hall Dam. Built on Doon Doon Creek, a tributary of the Tweed River, Clarrie Hall Dam has a storage capacity of 16,000 mega-litres of water and the primary function of the dam is to provide storage for Tweed Shire's water supply.

Activities permitted on Clarrie Hall Dam include canoeing, boating (electric motor, sail or paddle power only) and fishing. The dam is stocked with Australian Bass and an annual fishing competition is organised and run by the Australian Bass Association.

Clarrie Hall Dam also supports several significant bird species, including the vulnerable comb-crested jacana (Irediparra gallinacea) and the endangered black-necked stork (Ephippiorhynchus asiaticus). The recreation area is perfect for photography, bird watching, nature observation, environmental studies, picnicking and bush walking.
