Description: Prospect Reservoir is located on Prospect Creek, approximately 35 kilometres west of Sydney. The dam was completed in 1888 and was the first earthfill embankment dam in Australia. Its original purpose was to store water fed by gravity from the dams of the Upper Nepean system, via the Upper Canal. Open everyday of the year, the picnic area within Prospect Reservoir has BBQ facilities, children's playgrounds, toilets and a viewing area. Entrance off Reservoir Rd from Great Western Hwy.
