Three Lakes Recreation Review

Toowoomba Regional Council is undertaking a review of recreation activities at our three water supply reservoirs - Lake Cooby, Lake Perseverance, and Lake Cressbrook. The three lakes are critical to Toowoomba region’s water supply and also provide valuable on and off-water recreational opportunities for our community.

The Three Lakes Recreation Review is looking at the current recreation use at each of the lakes with the aim to optimise recreation opportunities, and at the same time, ensure protection of the drinking water supply in a financially responsible way.

The community consultation for this study has concluded. We are now reviewing the input received and will use this to inform the development of possible directions for recreation at the lakes.

We thank you for your involvement in the Three Lakes Recreation Review to date.
