Teemburra Dam

Teemburra Dam Road, Pinnacle QLD 4741

Teemburra Dam is situated in the picturesque Pioneer Valley approximately 50 kilometres west of Mackay City on a fully sealed road. The dam was constructed in 1997 to cope with the increasing demand for town water storage and irrigation purposes. The dam itself has a surface area of 1040 hectares, an average depth of 14.2 metres and holds 147 500 mega litres of water at full capacity. The dam is stocked by a local fish stocking group MAFSA with Sooty Grunter and Barramundi, who have also set up their own community hatchery to breed Sooty Grunter. A 25 horse power limit applies to all boats here with no water skiing allowed. A single lane concrete ramp is provided. There is no camping allowed at the dam, however accommodation can be found in Finch Hatton Gorge, Eungella National Park and Kinchant Dam. A Stocked Impoundment Permit (SIP) is required to fish at Teemburra Dam.

Ochre Arch Farm

761 Goodes Lane, Pinnacle NSW 2810
Visitors to 'Ochre Arch' have the opportunity to experience a guided farm tour, personally hosted by the owners Phillip and Jan Diprose. The 480 hectare farm is a fully operational beef and wool producing business with a practical 'real' sustainability focus, set up for simple management. Each tour is customised to visitor interests; and you will get to enjoy some of Jan's delicious home cooking with a 'cuppa'. Tours may focus on goal based land management and processes, low stress stock management and handling, indigenous aspects of the farm and artefacts, off grid power system, community and on-farm water schemes, local history, panoramic views of the local landscape, native vegetation and wildlife, and direct selling of their grass-fed beef. Both Phillip and Jan are heavily involved in the local community and are happy to openly share their experience. The ochre arch is a truly unique and significant, registered indigenous site.
