Lots of locals waking and chatting. A great place to meet like minded exercisers. Plenty of dogs to pat and bird life on the water. A pleasant way to get healthy.

Good walking paths around reservoir and also into a 'forest area' on the McIvor Rd end. Beautiful when water level is full, or very close to. As water level falls, so rapidly does the experience of walking all or in part. Ok to have dog(s)...More

Love to meet walking friends here. Fair distance between toilets. They do offer bags for picking up dog poo. Barbecues and fishing allowed. Heaps of bird life. Path is uneven in places. Don't walk around here Aline at night - gets dark and feels creepy....More
