A photographer has shared a video of 'Australia's Jurassic Park' after stumbling across a heavily graffitied dam while exploring his neighbourhood. 

Andrew, who posts under Andy Escapes online, found the dam in Sydney's Northmead area while looking for places to practice filming with his drone. 

The video, which was posted on TikTok, takes visitors across a creek and over impossibly high walls into the centre of the 'seemingly abandoned' structure.

It then skirts around the edge of the dam before sliding down an eerie-looking tunnel.

'I have found Jurassic Park in Sydney,' Andrew wrote proudly on the video.

'It looks like I am in the middle of nowhere but it is surprisingly close to the middle of Sydney,' he revealed.

The location is just three kilometres from Parramatta, and 25 kilometres from Sydney's CBD.

In a longer video on his Youtube the creative content maker revealed how he came up with the viral video.

He arrived at the dam and was instantly impressed by how 'sick' it was in person, comparing it to the lost dinosaur park or an Aztec structure.

He then decided the tunnel and creek would be important start and end points of his video.

'That was so scary,' he said, after filming the clip.

The film maker has never flown his drone over water or so close to trees, making the outing at 'Sydney's Jurassic Park' even riskier.

But his fans rewarded him for his efforts and the video has already been viewed more than 10,000 times.

'This is epic, it kind of looks like a skate park too,' one person said.

While others revealed they knew exactly where the video was filmed.

'This is my local bushwalking spot,' one person gushed.

Thousands of people liked the post and left comments saying they must visit the little-known spot.
