Administrator’s message – Revitalised Mangrove Creek Dam Visitor Space reopened for the community to enjoy!
New Mangrove Creek Dam Visitor Information Centre

Published On


Over the weekend, the brand-new Mangrove Creek Dam Visitors Centre re-opened for the community to enjoy!

After the devastating Three Mile Fire tore through the drinking water catchment during the 2019/2020 Black Summer Bushfires, Council staff have worked hard to re-build the site. This included the necessary demolition of burnt structures at the picnic area, removal of hazardous trees and natural bush regeneration.

The new space offers stunning views over the pristine natural hinterland landscape and is packed with features including:

  • a new interactive visitor education centre
  • new accessible family-friendly amenities block
  • new children’s play space, new picnic tables, shelters, BBQs, bins and bench seating
  • native landscaping to picnic areas
  • wayfinding and interpretive signage
  • improved pedestrian and vehicle access including new parallel bus parking for larger groups.

This new site was designed in partnership with our community and is a product of this successful community consultation and collaboration. I’d like to thank all those community members who took part in the process and shared their vision for the revitalised site.

Mangrove Creek Dam is a highlight destination for the region, and Council wanted to create a visitor space which encourages locals and visitors to spend more time enjoying this beautiful area, while supporting local businesses within the Coast’s mountain and hinterland regions.
