“Lovely”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2013

Pop on your runners and walk around... lovely. Recommend visiting during Melb Cup weekend as they have Springfest - festival around the whole lake (stalls, entertainment, vintage car displays). A fantastic day out.

“Amazing little oasis in th middle of town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2013

Great to have a drive around this lake as it was really pretty & lush even in the heat of summer. A great place to stop for a picnic or even walk aound & all the homes surrounding it were spectacular & very interesting to look at.
