“Great little park for a run or walk”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013

Newport Lakes park is a top place for a walk or run and it has a basic but well maintained playground for the little ones. The lake is quite nice and has stepping stones which can keep younger kids happy for a while.

“want a bush experience then head to Newport lakes”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013

I have lived in Melbourne for over thirty years and was shocked to find such a hidden treasure only 6 Klm to Melbourne CBD. We entered via Margaret street where there is plenty of parking and disabled parking. The parkland adjacent to the lake has good clean toilets, bbqs and tables etc. Dogs can enter the Newport lake district but must be on lead. Our dogs loved the smells of the giant gums as much as we did. The path is a little rocky in parts but fine for mountain bikes NS all terrain pushchairs. We just loved our day at the lakes, it reminded me of Daylesford minus the distance to get there. I understand the local use the lake a lot but it is such a gem i would love to see other Melbournians and tourist visit New port lakes. walks are beautiful you can bring a picnic or buy something from some of the local eateries and just relax and experience the bush in the city. What a truly special find. And if you are into native plants there is a native plant nursery on the right hand side as you drive in to the car park. they are open 6 days a week.

“This is my easy stroller walk”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013

Terrain is rough for a stroller but my baby loves it. Variety of short walks, very peaceful. Nice calm oasis in the middle of suburbia. Picnic, BBQ, playground and undercover seating. Hobson bay council really is pretty terrific.

“inner city treasure”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2012

Excellent quiet inner city location with plenty of bird life. A few roos or emus wandering around like the Warrnambool crater lake park would really put the place on the map. It would also be a great sculptor's venue too.
