Located around 30km west of Nowra,
Danjera Dam is an isolated location surrounded by native bushland and access is
via a single dirt road. The dam’s waters cover an old gold mining town called
Yalwal. Visitors come to the area for activities such as bushwalking, kayaking,
swimming and fishing. As the dam is a water supply to the Shoalhaven,
motorboats are not permitted on the dam at any time.
During severe fire periods the area
will be closed to visitors and anyone already onsite during a fire event will
be instructed to leave. Before visiting the area, it is advised to check the
NSW Rural Fire Service website, monitor local signage, or keep an eye on this
website for the latest updates.
There is no electricity,
drinking water, mobile phone or internet reception available in the area.
