This gentle loop has it all: BBQ, hundreds of water birds, playground, cafes, access to public transport and much more.
A fantastic route to take the pram, dog, kids or simply yourself. It is a very pretty public space which is very popular with the locals – especially on a sunny day!
If you are looking for a longer ‘bushy’ walk in the area, check out the Council’s ‘Aqueduct Recreation Trail’: http://www.cardinia.vic.gov.au/Files/Environment/cardinia-aqueduct_trail_map_web.pdf
The whole loop’s surface is either concrete or high-quality boardwalk and therefore usable by all most everyone.
At the western end of the lake is this great BBQ and playground, perfect spot to bring the family.
It is amazing juts how many birds there are in the lake!
There are plenty of signs and information sheets around the loop providing plenty of information for walkers.
The pier at the eastern end of the lake, just in front of the Cardinia Cultural Centre, is a perfect spot to feed the duck, swans and other types of birds.
As Cardinia Road Train Station is just under a km away, the lake is very easily accessible by public transport. The pedestrian facilities between the station and the lake and great.
You will be pleasantly surprised just how pleasant the views and amenity of the lake are.
What are these two up to?
The Council estimates the loop is 2,000 steps, which they consider is one fifth of the number of steps you should aim for per day.
Most of the walk has no guard rail, however the water depth is very shallow so do not be alarmed!
