How Aussies can visit a graffiti-painted dam that looks like something out of ‘Jurassic Park’ – and it’s only 15 miles from a major CBD
- A Sydney photographer has revealed how he found ‘Jurassic Park’ in lockdown
- Man found heavily graffitied seemingly ‘abandoned’ dam in Northmead
- He then made a video in which the area looked eerily like Jurassic Park
A photographer has shared a video of ‘Australia’s Jurassic Park’ after he came across a heavily graffitied dam while exploring his neighborhood.
Andrew, that post under Andy escapes online, found the dam in the Northmead area of Sydney while looking for places to practice filming with his drone.
The video, posted on TikTok, takes visitors across a creek and across impossibly high walls into the center of the “seemingly abandoned” structure.

A photographer has shared his very chilling video of ‘Australia’s Jurassic Park’ after tripping over a heavily graffitied dam while exploring his neighborhood
“This is epic, it looks like a skate park too,” someone said
It then winds along the edge of the dam before sliding down an eerie looking tunnel.
‘I’ve found Jurassic Park in Sydney,’ Andrew wrote proudly on the video.
“It seems like I’m in the middle of nowhere, but it’s surprisingly close to the middle of Sydney,” he revealed.
The location is just three kilometers from Parramatta and 25 kilometers from the Sydney CBD.
In a longer video about his Youtube the creative content creator revealed how he got on the viral video.
He arrived at the dam and was immediately impressed by how ‘sick’ it was in person, compared to the lost dinosaur park or an Aztec structure.
The heavily graffitied dam had an eerie atmosphere, according to the photographer

He then decided that the tunnel and creek would be important starting and ending points of his video.
“That was so scary,” he said after filming the clip.
The filmmaker has never flown his drone over water or so close to trees, making the trip to ‘Sydney’s Jurassic Park’ even more risky.
But his fans rewarded him for his efforts and the video has already been viewed more than 10,000 times.

“This is epic, it’s also a bit like a skate park,” said one person.
While others revealed they knew exactly where the video was filmed.
“This is my local bushwalk spot,” one person gushed.
Thousands of people liked the post and left comments saying they should visit the little-known place.
