Lake Maraboon


Fairbairn Dam is located 25 kilometres southwest of Emerald, in Central Queensland, almost on top of the Tropic of Capricorn line. Fairbairn Dam was constructed in 1972 across the Nogoa River "Gap" creating Lake Maraboon and is Queensland's second largest lake. Maraboon is the Aboriginal for "where the black ducks fly".

Lake Maraboon was created when Fairbairn Dam was constructed in 1972 and is one of the largest lakes in Queensland. Lake Maraboon is about 17 kilometres from Emerald and it is a great spot for fishing, boating and water skiing. This is home of the redclaw crayfish and we ran into some fishermen who showed us their catch - the male has bright red nippers.

There are lots of bush walking tracks around the lake and we even saw some children going for a cross country run. We walked to the edge of the Lake from the Lake Maraboon Holiday Park and enjoyed watching the sunset over the water. There are plenty of shaded picnic tables and you can even go for a swim on a hot day. This is a beautiful spot and well worth a visit - we could have stayed for a week as we found it very relaxing.
