Nepean Dam Close to the village of Bargo are the Nepean and Avon Dams, offering first class picnic facilities, beautiful bushland and spectacular views of the dams themselves: an ideal family day's outing. Half the fun of visiting the Avon is the miles of winding, scenic roadway you have to traverse to get there. The Nepean Dam is the last of the great dams of the Upper Nepean (completed 1935). It's just a kilometre or so off the freeway heading south and has excellent picnic facilities for families. The Avon was the third to be completed (1927) and is the largest. Its dam wall has been classified by the National Trust as a site of architectural importance.
The Dingo Sanctuary provides a rare opportunity to observe 44 dingoes in a natural bush setting.
