Lake Dartmouth. Victoria

Constructed in 1973, Dartmouth Dam impounds the waters of the Mitta Mitta River about 24km from the township of Mitta Mitta in north eastern Victoria. When full, the dam stores 4,000,000 megalitres of water from the alpine areas of Victoria.

Fish present:
Maquarie Perch, Trout Cod, Brown Trout, Rainbow Trout & carp.
Lake Dartmouth is a popular fishing destination for both brown and rainbow trout and also contains Victoria's largest population of Macquarie Perch - a fish now listed as vulnerable.

There are good boat launching facilities but, while motor boats can be used, water skiing and house boating is not permitted. Boats are required to keep at least 700 metres away from the dam wall.

Camping (with limited facilities) is permitted in designated areas around Lake Dartmouth. The track from Sassafras Gap to the Eustace Creek camping area can be accessed by car, although a four wheel drive is recommended in wet conditions. The two other camping grounds can be reached by boat.
