Beautiful Peaceful Reserve

Great place to walk, a number of different tracks to explore, either for short or long walks or sit and enjoy the peaceful surrounding. An abundance of bird life.

Nice walking tracks, lots of wildlife to look at (which means if you're walking dogs they will spend the whole time straining at the lead). They have done some great infrastructure where you can sit snd look through peepholes in a wooden barrier to bird watch unnoticed. Would be nice if somewhere in Traralgon had an offlead area?

The hard working volenteers and committee have transformed this park back to its natural beauty with a graet deal of hard work over many years A great place for locals and tourists to visit and enjoy.

I lived in Traralgon for years before realising this park was here! It consists of a variety of pathways circling a large lake and extending up and over a big hill or along the sides of Kick Horse Canyon. Some paths are more challenging than others, but you're almost guaranteed to see a variety of wildlife (mostly birds) and lots... More

Great place for photos, a place to sit and relax and a fantastic place for dog walks. During the summer months you have to look out for snakes as we have sighted several.

One of my favorite places to visit in Traralgon. My husband and I were married here in 2003 and we just love coming back here. It's like time slows down. The bird life is prolific, so much to enjoy. You can have a quick jog around the lake or sit in the hide and observe the water fowl, your choice!... More

This is a lovely place to visit for a couple of hours. I like to take my grandsons to enjoy the walk and feed the many varieties of ducks, which also like to follow us on our walk and are quite entertaining. There is a bird viewing platform and and information boards to read about the history of the reserve.

The Railway Reservoir has been cleaned up and made into a wonderful spot for walking. Tracks cross around the central lake and up through tree covered hills. You can walk around all the tracks enjoying the scenery and not go too far from your original starting point.
