Mangrove Creek Dam

Mangrove Creek Dam

Mangrove Creek Dam is situated around 30 minutes drive from the Gosford exit on the F3 Freeway. The drive is certainly worth the experience. Mangrove Creek Dam is an ideal location for a quiet secluded family picnic featuring excellent BBQ and picnic facilities.

The rock filled dam is 80m high with a concrete face and provides storage for regional urban centres of Gosford and Wyong (over 285,000 people). The embankment is made from low strength sandstones and siltstones as these were available on site during the construction.
