Grabine Lakeside State Park NSW re-opened its facilities to the public on 8 November 2010. With Wyangala Dam at 38% capacity, the Taylors Point boat ramp is in the water for the first time in seven years. So wipe the dust from your fishing roads and make your way back to Grabine Lakeside State Park.
Patrons to the Park MUST supply their own drinking water. The kiosk will be open selling essential supplies.
Enjoy the magnificent views of Grabine and Lake Wyangala or enjoy water sports, bushwalking and picnics. There are many walking trails to take in the spectacular scenery across the lake and surrounding countryside or take a canoe trip round the foreshores. Grabine Lakeside is an excellent inland fishing spot, with catches of silver and golden perch (yellow belly), catfish, trout, Murray cod and of course, European carp. Throughout the spring and summer seasons, Grabine Lakeside's 42 km of waterways offer pleasure boating, canoeing, swimming, water skiing, sailing and windsurfing. Visitors from all over the state soak up the stunning rural landscape on the north-east shores of Lake Wyangala at Grabine Lakeside State Park. With a water storage capacity in excess of 1,217,000 megalitres, 2.5 times the volume of Sydney Harbour, the catchment area measures 8,300 square kilometres.
