Holding back the Advancetown Lake, the Hinze Dam supplies Queenslands Gold Coast with water.
Hinze Dam was originally constructed in 1976 and was raised in 1989. The $395 million Hinze Dam Stage Three upgrade saw the dam wall raised by 15 metres, doubling the dam’s capacity and providing increased water security and flood mitigation.
Visitors are encouraged to visit the dam and explore the new facilities which include a state-of-the-art Interpretive Centre, lakeside parks, walking, bike and horse trails for public use.
