Moderate track
Starting from the end of Payne Road, The Gap, this walk takes you on a circuit in the southern side of the reservoir mostly via the South Boundary Road and Reservoir Tracks. Start with a peaceful forest hike including a couple of steep parts, then descend to the foreshore of the reservoir for a lovely change of scenery, Here, you’ll be accompanied with various bird species along with other wildlife. Expect picturesque views of the reservoir as you walk along the lakeside track. Additionally, you can get to the other side of the dam and cool off in the designated swimming area. The tracks are mostly shaded but remember to bring lots of water just in case. Take extra care in steep declines and keep in mind that the lakeside track can be muddy in parts. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
