A children's play area is nestled among the trees, there are shaded picnic benches dotted around the bush with stunning views of the dam and Glass House Mountains. Or if you prefer, safe and easy bushwalking.
The boardwalk around the edge of the lake will take you around 5 kilometres of the lake with viewing platforms every so often. The boardwalk turns into an easy bush track with delightful wooden bridges at intervals along the way.
On a hot day, the dam is dotted with kayakers and rowboats whilst the swimming area (roped off and safe for youngsters, is filled with fun and laughter as families enjoy the water, or sitting sunning on the lovely sandy beach or grassed areas.
Ewen Maddock Dam is an easy drive down the Bruce Highway taking the Landsborough turnoff and then into the Mooloolah Valley Turnoff about 2 kilometres up at Connection Rd, just past the skate board park.
