The Poolburn Dam is a barren, rocky, endless landscape, accessed via the very rough Moa Creek road, located west of the Rough Ridge Range. Long Valley Creek feeds the reservoir, and the reservoir itself feeds the Ida Valley. The reservoir is inhabited by fisherman huts dotted around, and is an excellent place to fish for brown trout.
