Kookynie has a great Australian Pub, Niagra is just west. An oasis in the wilderness has a picnic, swimming and camping spot for visitors and local alike. The dam took its name from the nearby town of Niagara, which was booming at the time of the dam's construction (have a look as it's a very interesting ghost town). Big enough for Caravans and motor homes, we always stop here if passing this way.
Great for wildlife and bird watchers, always peaceful, and is never crowded as the area at bottom of dam is huge!
