Cressbrook Dam is one of the three water storages used to supply Toowoomba and the surrounding region. The dam was constructed in 1983 for the former Toowoomba City Council, now part of Toowoomba Regional Council. The other two storages used for Toowoomba are Perseverance Dam and Cooby Dam.
Cressbrook Dam has a surface area of 517 hectares with a total capacity of 81,842 mega-litres when full (78,847 ML usable) at an average depth of 15.8 metres. The catchment also contains Perseverance Dam, which is located 10 km upstream of Cressbrook.
A Stocked Impoundment Permit is required to fish in the dam.
