Awoonga Dam tops for holiday fun in great outdoors

WITH people on boats and jet skis, Awoonga Dam proved a popular venue for people wanting to head outdoors on Saturday.

A visit to the picturesque lake is a must-do for holiday-makers. It is only a 30-minute drive from Gladstone, via Benaraby.

Swimming is permitted from the shore, and there is a boat ramp that provides 24-hour access for sailing, fishing, and skiing.

Watercraft, including house boats, can be hired.
