Ben Chifley Dam is a water storage site for Bathurst and surrounding area. There are many fish here, such as English Perch and huge cod. The dam is located a short drive south of Bathurst with lots of lovely scenery along the way. It is well known for the fantastic Redfin fishing so is very worthwhile spending a whole weekend here. There are many accommodation options such as on site cabins and also lots of nice free camping spots. A sound piece of advice however is that camping spots are limited so be sure to check things out thoroughly if travelling from a long distance. If you can't make the whole weekend be sure to spend at least a single day here relaxing and enjoying the scenery, Boating is also popular here and there are no bookings required. Just turn up and enjoy !
