We were looking for a gas Bbq to cook our sausages and thought that the dam would have them in the picnic area. We arrived at the very pretty dam and could see the Bbq in the distance. But Murphy was tormenting us and the Bbq was out of order. We took a bit of a look around and then decided to head off.

Large reservoir considering the surrounding steep forests. Some picnic spots by the lake and you can go across the first wall for closer looks at the dam, including a circular walk near the table. There's an entrance to the great walk, allowing access to Obi Creek for some rock hopping, or up the mountain to some lookouts or to Kondalilla Falls 10km away.

Far removed from the bustle of other parks, rivers & dams ... Lake Baroon has space, good picnic amenities & a fair bit of serenity! The main picnic area is on the northern shoreline of the dam - which is adjacent, but fortunately can't be easily seen from the grassy slopes. There are picnic gazebos with BBQ's & also table & benches, plus plenty of grassy areas to spread out a picnic rug & enjoy the view.
Our strategy was to grab a pre-ordered Hamper from MALENY FOODS & stretch out on the grass. What a peaceful view ... and the hamper was real special. Fresh tasty beaut quality which I would thoroughly recommend.
The parking was close to full, which in busier times would be a problem.
The area sits under the hillside of Secrets on the Lake Restaurant, although the trees hide most of the building.
We are bound to return with the same game plan.

The public reserve at Baroon Pocket Dam has excellent picnic facilities, with bbqs, shade trees and walking paths. The lake is great for fishing and swimming

Visited Baroon Pocket Dam in October 2020 and was able to see it from various viewpoints from Maleny and Montville. Regrettably, the dam was at a very low level due to lack of rainfall in the area. Well worth a visit to the area.

Such a peaceful and beautiful place. Lots of birds so bring your binoculars. There’s a picnic area and some walking paths. Not necessarily lots to do here (unless you want to go for a swim or go kayaking) but a lovely place to visit, see birds and go for a walk.
