Blue Mountain Park boasts of being Middlemount's "Jewel in the Crown"! It is a picturesque setting that provides visitors with a perfect place to have a family barbecue while enjoying the panoramic views of the surrounding areas. Many evenings, there are even wallabies feeding in the park and the birdlife is utterly spectacular including many Australian favourites like galahs, kookaburras, blue mountain parrots and colourful rainbow lorikeets! Middlemount plays host to a number of natural environments and parks that are all equipped for fun to be enjoyed by the likes of young and old.
The beautiful Bundoora Dam is located approximately 28 kilometres south-west of Middlemount along Middlemount Road that joins onto Connection Road. It is a delightful man-made spectacle that was constructed on German Creek for mining purposes. It holds around 10,000 mega litres of water when full and is an ideal spot for water skiing and swimming. For those keen fishermen, the dam is full of Saratoga, Golden Perch, Eel-Tailed Catfish, Sleepy Cod, Spangled Perch and Redclaw Crayfish. So don't forget to bring your rod and tackle! Boating is permitted (however a six knot speed limit applies to the whole of the dam). If you are looking for a spot to stop overnight, this is a perfect place as camping is permitted and it's well equipped with tables and public amenities!
