Dam water smelt gassy. It was not somewhere to enjoy a fresh air picnic. We did not find a clean or mown area beside or in view of the water. However, the scenic view was nice enough for photos. Limited facilities.

Leslie Dam is suitable for boating and fishing. It's possible to walk part way along the top of the wall and watch turtles lazing about in the water below. It is a great picnic spot with lovely vistas of the downs. There are numerous boulders...More

Large dam good for fishing and water sports but unfortunately getting rather low currently. One of the locals said it was well under 30% full - needs a lot of rain to fill it

Venue offers different areas for family to spread out. Grass can be full of burs so careful in summer if visiting. Water views are lovely as are the stone carvings. Toilets are clean and usable. Area can be a challenge to wheelies.

Potentially a great spot, if it was looked after better. Some parts are littered with rubbish around the edge of the lake; a lot of that fishing line, bottles and the such, left behind by anglers. Local people do not take care of it as...More
