Gordonbrook Dam is the sole source of water supply for Kingaroy, Queensland; it was built in 1941 to provide water for the Royal Australian Air Force Training Base during WWII. In 1987 due to increased demand the dam wall was raised and the inundated area is now 229 hectares.
A basic picnic area is located on the eastern shores. The picnic area is fairly large and contains a composting toilet, a water tank, picnic tables, a boat ramp, information signs and a bush walk that includes an elevated lookout and a well maintained bird hide.
Low horsepower tinnies (Tin Dinghy) and non-motorised craft are welcome on the lake when the Blue Green Algae (Cyanobacteria) levels are safe. No boating permits are currently required.
Blue Green Algae
During dry periods and because the dam's smaller size, the dam experiences high levels of Blue Green Algae (Cyanobacteria). Activities are at the user's own risk and the boat ramp has gates to prevent motorised craft from entering the water during times of high risk of the algae.

A Stocked Impoundment Permit is required to fish in the dam.
