Chaffey Dam - Nundle


Chaffey Dam is a minor ungated rock fill with clay core embankment dam with an uncontrolled morning glory spillway across the Peel River, located upstream of the city of Tamworth, in the New England region of New South Wales, Australia. The dam's purpose includes flood mitigation, irrigation, water supply, and water conservation.

RvTrips' review

14 Feb 2017

Chaffey Reservoir Dam is about 43 kilometres from Tamworth in NSW and we stopped to have a look on our way to the small town of Nundle. An extension to the dam wall was finished recently - a red rock wall made of semi-precious stone with a morning glory spillway (apparently there are only two of these in Australia where water flows into a funnel rather than over the dam wall).  

Chaffey Dam supplies irrigation to farms and water to Tamworth. The lake is popular for water sports, fishing, bushwalkers, campers and picnickers. Check out Chaffey Dam Bowling Alley Point  Recreational area - large camping area on the foreshore of the dam with an amenities block on the top of the hill. Showers are available for a fee - $1 honesty box for a 3 minute shower. Camping is at $5 per vehicle per night and an honesty box is situated at the entrance to the area.  Roads are good and there are plenty of lovely areas to set up camp with tent, caravan or motor home (heaps of space).

A very welcoming place to relax for a few days.
