It was built in 1965, though raised in 1980 to improve its capacity. Visitors should keep in mind that the dam is ungated, so water will flow out safely when it’s full.

One of the major attractions in town is Lake MacDonald Park, where you can spend a few hours unwinding with a delicious BBQ with family and friends. The amenities provided here include BBQs, shelters, and picnic tables situated right across the lake so that you can take in the views. The park also has a playground where kids can run around and burn off energy in a safe space.

The lake is also popular among people who love water sports. There is a fishing platform as well, from where you can launch motorised vessels and paddle crafts. The lake is abundant with Australian bass, Mary River cod, golden perch, silver perch, and many more. For visitors interested in spending a few nights close to the lake, accommodation is available in Camp Cooroora.
