Cataract Dam, located on the Cataract River, is the oldest and one of the most striking dams in Sydney. The dam was completed in 1907, costing around $1.3 million.
The weathering of the sandstone that has occurred throughout the years, along with the stone battlements, makes the dam a picturesque location with picnic shelters, electric barbecues, drinking water, toilet facilities, a playground and viewing areas.
