Lake Cania

Lake Cania

Picturesque Lake Cania is located approximately 37 kilometers north of Monto and 194 kilometers from Gladstone. The sealed road from Monto branches off the Burnett Highway (A3) twelve kilometers north of Monto and passes through the 3 000 hectare Cania Gorge National Park. The lake is situated on Three Moon Creek, a tributary of the Burnett River. The dam is constructed from earth and rock fill and has a storage capacity of 88,500 megalitres. The short steep walk or easy drive to the lookout is well worth the effort. From here the breathtaking panoramic views of the Gorge’s coloured sandstone cliffs and the spectacular sunsets will leave lasting memories of Cania. Kangaroos and Whiptail Wallabies inhabit the area during late afternoon.
