Communities to Enjoy Access to Burrendong Dam and Cudgegong River from tomorrow and Monday for Local Recreation

Reflections Holiday Parks

With the Dubbo Region still under Stay-at-Home Orders, Reflections Holiday Parks at Lake Burrendong and Cudgegong River are open from tomorrow, 18 September to provide local communities access to the reserves and dam for exercise, recreation and boating. Mookerawa Waters will open its gates to allow access to the reserve from Monday, 20 September 2021.

Reflections Holiday Parks CEO Nick Baker said Reflections wanted to open these recreation reserves and access to the waterways for the health and wellbeing of local communities still under Stay-at-Home Orders.

“Covid restrictions have been difficult for many families in the Dubbo Region and Reflections is pleased to be able to allow this extra option for enjoying the outdoors in a safe, recreational space under the current Public Health Orders,” Mr Baker said.

“Our reserves are the perfect tonic to get rid of those stay-at-home blues and we encourage visitors to take the opportunity to get back to nature and have some fun exercising or enjoying the dam.

“Being quite vast, our reserves allow for easy social distancing and park staff will be on hand to help with any queries surrounding the current orders in place around exercise and outdoor recreation.”

Visitors from Saturday, 18 September at Lake Burrendong and Cudgegong River and from Monday, 20 September at Mookerawa Waters, will need to sign in at the park receptions or make an appointment to access their on-site boat shed.

Mr Baker said opening the reserves and dam access was the first step towards opening the parks completely to guests and local communities once we get the word that we can do so.
