Rocky Valley Dam - Bogong High Plains

The Rocky Valley Dam is located on the Bogong High Plains, near Falls Creek, Victoria, a winter ski resort. The dam is man-made and has a capacity of 28,000 megalitres and is situated at 1600 metres above sea level.

The dam was created for the Kiewa Hydroelectric Scheme, owned and operated by AGL Energy.

The dam is also utilised in snow making in winter for the Falls Creek ski resort.

Our visit to the Dam was on March 7, 2009, which included a drive along a newly sealed section of the High Plains Rd, next to the Dam.

This is programmed for completion by May 2009, linking Falls Creek with the Omeo Highway 35 km distant.

This sealed touring loop for three of the four seasons is expected to increase visitation to the Alpine National Park and incorporates improvements for park users such as improved visitor areas and signage.
