Local Area


Chichester Dam

Chichester Dam Rd,
Dungog NSW 2420

Opening Times:
8am - 5pm


Chichester Dam

Chichester Dam was constructed between 1917 and 1926 located at the top of the Williams River catchment. You will find picnic areas with wooden barbecues and an area for children to play. 

Chichester Dam was constructed as the Hunter’s first dedicated drinking water storage system. Chichester Dam is one of the Hunter’s most important freshwater storage facilities contributing about 35 per cent of the Lower Hunter’s portable water supply. 

Located at the top of the Williams River catchment the dam replaced the Walka Water Works at Maitland, which was unable to meet the water demands of a growing industrial region. The catchment for Chichester Dam is largely within the Barrington Tops National Park, which is a declared wilderness area. As a result it is one of the most pristine catchments in Australia with large areas unaffected by human activity.

Chichester State Forest

95 Castle Hill Rd,
West Pennant Hills NSW 2125


Chichester State Forest

Picturesque Chichester State Forest is located in the Lower Barrington Tops and offers free picnic and camping grounds, the majority located near creeks/rivers.

Telegherry, Frying Pan, Currawong and Coachwood camping areas are located in the lush south-eastern side of the forest, best accessed from Dungog. White Rock, Old Camp and Pademelon Park are camping areas on the south-western side of the forest, best accessed from Gresford. Allyn River Forest Park, also in this area, is a great place for a picnic whilst the famous Ladies Well swimming hole is within a short distance of camping areas.

Temperatures vary considerably between the foothills (170 metres) and the Barrington Plateau (1,577 metres). Night temperatures regularly drop below zero from June to November. Campers are advised to pack cold/wet weather gear, and take their own fresh drinking water. Dogs are permitted on leads, as is bushwalking, swimming, trail-bike and four-wheel driving.

Dungog James Theatre

6 Brown St,
Dungog NSW 2420

(02) 4992 2294


Dungog James Theatre

The James Theatre was the social hub of Dungog, not only for its film screenings, but its balls and dances, catered for by the Wattle Club ladies. The original kitchen, still in the building today, shows just what a challenge it would have been for those hard working ladies, who served supper to accommodate the large numbers of patrons.

The Theatre fell on hard times and fell into disrepair until it was purchased by the Dungog Shire Council in 1979 to provide a large function centre for the community.

Cinema screenings were continued during the 1980s and 90s and until 2007 by a dedicated Ken Reeve, in spite of the increasing challenges posed by television and videos.Since then the community has worked to keep the Theatre building operational for films, live performances and functions. Please visit the web site for more information.

Tocal Homestead

Tocal Homestead is an important rural heritage site because much of the site, including barns, stables and the original residence built in 1822, remains intact.  The Homestead (built in 1841) is set on a 2200ha property encompassing natural wetlands, dry sclerophyll forests and rainforest remnants.

The Homestead is presented in the context of original outbuildings and sheds that contribute to the fascinating story of Tocal. 

Farm tours provide an opportunity to experience the beautiful 2200 hectare property. The tour includes the beef, horse, dairy and sheep enterprises as well as the natural features of the historic landscape.

Tocal is a working farm so visitors are able to view the seasonal activities of the farm operations. A two hour guided tour of the Homestead can be tailored to the interests of your group and will take in the highlights of the heritage site.
