Lovely place to walk or sit by the water. Looks a little untidy recently with trees that have blown down and big piles of branches which is a shame but still a lovely place.

This is a great place to walk, stroll or take the kids to so they can observe nature’s wonders. It is like an oasis for water birds and scrub birds. We have spent several hours there observing the wildlife. Highly recommend. Enjoy.

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!

Surprising hidden gem in Traralgon. Loverly cared for by locals and loved by the locals. Extra special in springtime watching all the chicks and young of the resident birdlife being cared for by their parents.

Little known to the general public. It’s a fantastic place to have a leisurely stroll including boardwalks, family BBQ or wedding photos (permissions sort and given). It’s surprisingly located within the town city limits of Traralgon as it is a bush land enclave. It’s quite...More

Our children loved it here. We visited for an hour and walked around the lake, explored the canyon, seen many birds, looked under logs for lizards and bugs and chased the birds and ducks. A great opportunity to take a few photos of the kids...More

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.

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