Gordonbrook Dam

This dam was originally constructed by the Irrigation and Water Supply sub-department of Lands Department in 1942 as a water supply source for RAAF personnel based at Taabinga and for the people of Kingaroy.  In 1987 Kingaroy Shire Council completed additional construction raising the dam walls current height.

DPI, Water Resources, which is now responsible for managing Queensland`s water supplies and Kingaroy Shire Council which manages the dam are proud of this contribution to the Australia War effort.
