Boarding House Dam Picnic Area
A popular picnic spot with daytrippers in summer, Boarding House Dam picnic area offers all the amenities, as well as local history, paddling, and hiking opportunities. Boarding House Dam picnic area is a must-see starting point for any trip into Watagans National Park.
The boarding house originally accommodated the longest-serving and largest logging camp in the area.
Today, an outstanding rainforest canopy awaits anyone looking for an easy walk, taking in lush ferns and moss-covered boulders and walls along the Circuit walking track. The area is especially popular with families, since the picturesque creek and dam nearby are ideal for a paddle. Whether you choose to unwind in the shade of this luscious rainforest area, or cook up a feast on one of the picnic area’s barbecues, this is a great place to while away the hours.
