Warragamba and Silverdale

Quiet retreat packed with history and a damn lot more than just a Dam!

Located at the Eastern Edge of the Blue Mountains and only 1.5 hours from Sydney, Warragamba and Silverdale are quaint villages that make up for their small size with a big history.

Originally man-made for the purpose of water supply, Warragamba Dam is an engineering masterpiece. The dam is a must visit destination with beautiful views over the body of water and a free museum uncovering the history of the builders who laboured to create one of the world’s largest domestic dams. Don’t forget to pack a picnic and enjoy the free BBQ facilities, or make your way to the village for a pick-me-up at the local cafes!

Warragamba is a quiet retreat. A visit to the village will reveal charming shops, cafes, a bakery, residential houses and narrow streets giving visitors insight into life during the construction of the dam. Surrounding rural outskirts close by is also the small town of Silverdale. Each year the towns rally to hold “Dam Fest”, a celebration of food stalls, markets, rides, car shows and entertainment.

Warragamba is also home to an all-inclusive play space “Livvi’s Place” located at the Warrgamba Civic Park.
