Hyden Humps Dam is situated approximately twenty kilometres north of Hyden, Western Australia.

Water[edit]

The dam is filled with rainwater runoff which is channeled off the Humps mountain.

Characteristics[edit]

The water source is now only used as a backup supply after the completion of the Great Southern scheme where water is piped through the wheatbelt region from the Harris River Dam.
