Risdon Brook Dam

Risdon Brook Park


To align with the State and Federal Government COVID-19 response, TasWater has made the decision to close Risdon Brook Park 

until further notice. Our number one priority remains the health and safety of our customer, staff and community.




Given the current social distancing rules, TasWater are no longer taking bookings for BBQ areas at Risdon Brook Dam.

If you have already booked  an event, please contact the park booking line on  0437 347 776 where you can re-book for later in the year or alternatively you may request a refund.

The general casual BBQ areas are also now closed.

The site remains open to the public for the moment however we are continually reviewing the situation as further information comes to hand.  If you do intend to visit the park please observe social distancing rules.

Visitors familiar with the site will notice that there is more shoreline exposed than usual, this is due to recent lowering of water levels to provide access for water vegetation removal. 500 tonnes of weeds have been removed from the reservoir, which will improve the quality of the water that is stored in the reservoir. TasWater is now refilling the reservoir, with water expected to be returned to a more familiar level by late November.


Risdon Brook Park is the location of one of TasWater's largest drinking water reservoirs in the south of the state. Set among dense bushland, Risdon Brook Park is a popular recreational area and offers a walking track, barbecue facilities and disabled fishing bays, children's playground and toilets.

NOTE: with the weather warming up, we would like to remind the public to be cautious of snakes as they become more active.
