Lake Hume



Hume Dam is the main regulating water storage on the River Murray System and supplies irrigation water and hydro-electric power. It is immediately downstream of the confluence of the River Murray and Mitta Mitta River, about 16 kilometres east of Albury-Wodonga. When full, Hume Dam holds a maximum of 3,005,000 megalitres, about six times the size of Sydney Harbour.

Lake Hume is a popular tourist destination with things to see and do all year round including boating, fishing, camping, sightseeing, historic sites including the remains of the Bonegilla Migrant Centre, rail trail, Lake Hume dam wall plus picnic and BBQ areas.

Visit the Dam Wall - You can view the Lake Hume dam wall from either the Hume Dam Wall Reserve to the north, or the Mitta Junction Picnic Reserve to the south.

Both locations offer viewing platforms with spectacular views for photography and general sightseeing, as well as visitor facilities.

South of the impressive dam wallyou'll find scenic picnic spots such as Jackson Point (Old Weir Road, Bonegilla) and Kookaburra Point (turnoff at 76 Bonegilla Road, Ebden), both of which feature barbecues and gentle sloped banks that are perfect for kids to cool off with a gentle splash of water. The local tradition is to enjoy an ice-cream from the local milk bar on a hot afternoon.

There is a wide variety of public recreation areas and reserves around the lake with access to the lake foreshore and a range of visitor facilities. Fishing, sightseeing and walking are mainly allowed along the Victorian foreshore and public land areas of Lake Hume. In NSW, public access is more limited. Apart from public reserves, most of the foreshore land is private freehold land that can only be entered with the permission of the land owner.
