Start at the Blackburn Lake Sanctaury visitor centre car park, just off Central Road in Blackburn. Walk south toward the lake, then across the 'Friend's Bridge' and around past the lake. The walk takes you out on to Lake Road over the lake wall where you can view the full length of the lake. Turn left back into the Sanctuary and enjoy the scenic stroll north surrounded by native bush. At the top of the lake take the bridge across the wetland then follow the track around to the left and back along the lake edge to the visitor centre.
