Lake Inverell was formed in 1938 when the dam wall across the Macintyre River just upstream of Inverell was completed to supply water for Inverell. Lake Inverell Reserve is now a peaceful aquatic sanctuary close to town. The area is home to a large variety of birds, platypus, kangaroos, wallabies and waterbirds, and is a popular area for barbecues, walking, bird watching, kayaking, canoeing and fishing. Dogs are permitted on a lead within the Lake Inverell reserve area. There are two walking tracks provided. Lake Inverell Walk is a three-kilometre return trip, easy grade walk. Keen walkers can continue on the Barayamal Walk, which passes through Barayamal National Park, and is a medium grade six-kilometre return trip walk. Dogs are not permitted in Barayamal National Park.
