Wappa dam and the Wappa falls is a lovely spot for a picnic with the family. Lovely environment, picnic and BBQ facilities, clean toilets and plenty of open spaces for ball games. Swings too for younger ones. Great spot for some nice walks.

Great little spot to have a BBQ or picnic lunch. Lots of water flowing over the dam. Head up the road to Wappa Falls. A nice little waterfall.

A glorious outlook from the picnic table to birds in the trees and ample water flowing over the wall. Bar-B-Que areas were well presented and clean. The clean amenities were a pleasant surprise.
