This lake is in town so it is enjoyed by local bike riders and families out for a stroll. If you visit for sunset then stop by the Jabiru sports club for a cool drink and bite to eat out on their deck.

Nice circular walk in town. Nothing to do in small town, so worth walking. Protect against mozzies. Nice bird life
