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.

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.

This is a lovely reserve with lots of walking trails. Lots of bird-life and heaps of great locations for family photos. There are no toilets or facilities (cafes etc) so bring food for a relaxing picnic.

Constantly changing environment. This is our go to place when we have visitors and want to get out of the house. Wildlife, walking tracks and the kids can feed the ducks. Only doen side is there are no toilets

The park is great for a walk in a bush setting without having to drive far to get there. Lots of ducks and birds add to the surroundings

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