Beautiful scenery

I grew up in the area and always love visiting Rocky Crk when I'm home. Make sure you wear long socks, as leeches are very common on the walk!

Great to see an upgraded carpark and well maintained paths.

A good place for families with great views
Apr. 2021
We chose to do the dam wall and spillage walk, the walk down to the spillage was blocked off waiting for repairs which was a shame because I would have loved photos of the water spilling over the rocks. Apart from that though this is a great spot for walking tracks for all ages, there is a play ground for young children, BBQ's and decent toilets. A great spot to take a picnic too and enjoy the scenery.

A lovely walk

The dam is really Lismore’s water supply. The outlook is lovely. The grounds are also lovely. We did the platypus walk which we enjoyed.

Beautiful spot to take family or friends or even just take yourself for a nice walk. There are a few different treks to do. There is a nab area and park also.

Fantastic place to visit with the kids
Feb. 2019 • Family
We did the Platypus Walk with 2 kids (aged 4 and 1) and its a very easy walk to do with kids this age. Don't be afraid of the drop on the dam wall - it looks worse than what it actually is. Can easily take a pram/pushchair on this walk with no issue at all.
Beautiful walk in a well maintained park - I just wish we were able to spot a platypus but more of a reason to come back!

Very nice place

Really enjoyed the walk around the place, very scenic. Shame there is no swimming or canoeing allowed. Barbeque was clean, had a great day out. Bumped into a rous water worker, he was very friendly. Definitely recommend you go there to relax.
Saw the nimbin bus pull up there, many joints were smoked as people relaxed, very 😎 cool

A quick visit but worth the drive
Sep. 2018 • Family
A large area with plenty of room for everyone. Parking was a little tight on the day we visited as there was a wedding going on. BBQ and picnic areas were still available on the Saturday afternoon we visited.

Super pretty location, not far from Lismore. Dog friendly which is great, we are planning another picnic here as it is gorgeous.

Rocky Creek Dam
Jul. 2018 • Business
Fantastic family picnic and barbecue place. The platypus walk takes you along Rocky creek, is beautiful and not too far. For anyone with a bit of fitness take a walk across the dam wall and follow the track into the Big scrub remenent. Beautiful big trees that are worth a look.
The whole site used to be grazing paddocks and are now restored back to rainforest. Rous County Council bush regenerators have created a showpiece displaying what can be achieved. If you own land and like the idea of revegetating come and have a look what many North Coast landholders are actually replicating.
Rocky creek dam site was revegetated by taking out the weeds and allowing the seedlings to grow without too much replanting. The proximity to the big scrub meant the seed source was close enough to do it itself.
The planning of walking tracks and grassed areas around the backdrop of Rocky creek dam makes this reveg site a great place to get inspired.

Work trip for a walk

Clean, safe and peaceful. Lots of parking, great area for a bbq or picnic. The walks to choose from are either long or short walks. Little rest stops along the way are great for people who need to rest oftern. Information panels around the area are informative.
