Work on Meadowbank Dam’s second crest gate is underway. For more information about what we’re doing, visit

For safety reasons, Lake Meadowbank will be lowered 2 metres below its usual level from 30 January 2024. Later this year (timing TBD), the lake will be lowered a further 4 metres while we test the newly installed hydraulic cylinders and control system. The lake is expected to return to normal levels by mid-year.

During works, the lake will be too low to use Dunrobin boat ramp and this facility will be temporarily closed. To explore alternative Hydro Tasmania sites nearby, check out our interactive map
