Dam · Hidden Gem · National Park
Lake Lenthall is a lake created by the Lenthalls Dam in Duckinwilla, Fraser Coast Region, Queensland, Australia. It was named after the pioneering family in the district. It was constructed in 1984 on the head waters of the Burrum River and raised by 2 metres in 2007. As a result of a 518 square kilometre catchment it takes a short time in moderate rain events to fill Lake Lenthall to 100% capacity.
The lake has a relatively small surface area of 766 ha, an average depth of 4 to 5 m. Its main purpose is for town water supply for Hervey Bay and surrounding townships within the Fraser Coast Regional Council area.

  • Great spot of site seeing, family picnics and camping. - Not bad for fresh water fishing (with a permit). It isn't far off the main road but feels further, the access road is absolutely shocking.
