Nullinga Dam and Mareeba Dimbulah Water Supply Scheme Improvements
Building Queensland is leading the development of the Nullinga Dam and Mareeba Dimbulah Water Supply Scheme Improvements Detailed Business Case in partnership with SunWater. The proposed Nullinga Dam site is located on the Walsh River in the Atherton Tablelands. It has been proposed as a future water supply to serve growing urban demand in Cairns and to stimulate irrigated agriculture in the region.
