Plenty of choices for walks from 100 yards from car-park, to several km. Lots of bird-life. Picnic facilities a plenty, but unfortunately no toilets. A bush retreat right in Traralgon!

Visit the Traralgon railway reserve quite often to have a picnic with family. New tracks have just been added that are a wonderful change. Need public toilets and BBQs.

The birds are very tame and it is such a pleasure to walk among them and they do not fly away. The lake and surrounds are well maintained and appointed. Accessible in a couple of minutes from the car park and an easy walk.

There is no public transport there sadly but you could catch a taxi I guess. There is no public anywhere near by.
