Rocky Creek Dam

Rocky Creek Dam

Rocky Creek Dam is a water catchment dam on the North Coast of New South Wales, Australia. It supplies water for the majority of the Far North Coast of New South Wales.

The Rocky Creek Dam catchment area is a 29 km² area once used for logging but is now a pristine catchment environment for the North Coast of New South Wales. The dam itself covers around two square kilometres (478 acres) and can hold about 14,000 mega litres of water when at 100% capacity. The dam wall is 27 metres high and is made up of about 80,000 tonnes of rock, soil, clay and concrete.
