Key infrasturcture underpinning all of our lives
dic. de 2020
While the dam wasn't spilling when we were there it was still worth a stop to pay our respects. These Central Otago dams are a monument to New Zealand's past progress and of course are an essential infrasturcture that all our lives are built on.

Great lookout, especially if dam is spilling
feb. de 2020
This is a great lookout of the dam and lake, and is especially good if the dam is spilling. This dam was on of the first large hydro electric dams built in NZ, and was a wonderful feat of engineering.

Great place to stop and stretch your legs and enjoy the hydro dam lookout. There are boards there with plenty of information.

Great walk and views
oct. de 2018 • Familia
We spent quite a lot of time at the bottom on the dam, scrambling on rocks. We did the walk to the spillway lookout viewpoint and on to the lake view lookout. They both had great views and we all enjoyed the scrambling on the second part. We went above the dam then dropped down to the road. The path going up us not signposted, but there is enough of a path to come down. See the picture with the map on.

Great picnic spot good views
ago. de 2018 • Familia
We stopped for a picnic under the trees (thanks for the picnic table) and drove over the dam a couple of times (quite a novelty) definitely need to keep an eye on very small and adventurous kids, the Clutha is not at all forgiving.

Nice scenery of man made dam and lake
jun. de 2018 • Parejas
The dam was built in early 1950s and was operated by the late of 1950s as the earliest of the large hydroelectric projects in the southern South Island of New Zealand. The dam creates a man made Lake Roxburgh and the water rise effect on Clutha River reach some 25 km upstream toward Alexandra. The Dam located approx 10 km north of Roxburgh Town. Visitors have two choices, either driving or walking on the road at the top of the dam, or driving to the lookout more than 100m high above the top of the dam on the cliff to get better views. Options for visitors either as a family picnic place at the surrounding area, or as the bonus to have a break here when travelling between Roxburgh and Alexandra, a really good place to see fantastic river scenery.

Worth the visit

We stopped in here for a quick side trip. There is a car park at the top, on a side st off Roxburgh E Road for some good views. Or you can carry along Roxburgh E road across the dam and take in the views from that side of the Clutha river.

Visit the Roxburgh Hydro Dam and Lookout... stupendous views and activities abound...
mar. de 2016 • En solitario
The Roxburgh Hydro Electric Dam (10 mins drive towards Alexandra, off main highway) was built in the 1950s, it is worth parking up and walking across the dam top or driving above the dam to the lookout point (west side) for views and a great place to picnic. If your vehicle (not rentals) can handle it their is a second viewpoint 400m above the lower one, with amazing views, walks and cycling to be had. Take care of steep cliffs and bluffs, particularly on windy days and keep away from edge. Spectacular to see in flood-time when the floodgates are opened.
