Falls Dam is situated on Loop Road 10km east of St Bathans. The power house was constructed in 1935 and generates 1,250 kW of electricity. When you driving Loop Road look out for the sign Fiddlers Flat Road which lead into the Dam wall. Extreme care on the road. It is very photogenic with the Hawkdun Mountains in the background. Take your rod and camera and enjoy a pleasant day in this peaceful setting.
