Water for the once-thriving town of Shannon and its timber mill was drawn from the Shannon River. The river often dried up in summer so a dam was built upstream of the mill sites in 1949 to ensure summer supplies.
Enjoy a range of recreational activities here including canoeing/kayaking, swimming, cycling and bush walking.
