A nice easy walk to enjoy with a bit of local history of its original use. Also has a handy site for caravans to park and dump waste.

The Goldfields Res (as the locals call it) is a great place to go for a nice walk around this quiet waterway. A good place to bring your kayak and paddle about. Also a great place to cool down with the kids in summer.

Located just out of town. Basic facilities including an undercover bbq. Pleasant walking track around the reservoir (1.7km). Water level seems low which makes the area less interesting. Nothing special but at least convenient.

Small reservoir and park on the outskirts of town on the road to Ballarat. Nothing spectacular, but nice to stop off for a while and walk around. It has shaded areas and picnic tables.

I often stop here when visiting M'boro for some quiet time. The toilets are well maintained and there is a dump point for travellers. A walk track surrounds the lake, so it's great for those travelling with their dogs or just to stretch your legs.

Free barbecue area with seating. A path surrounding the water body allows for either a quiet stroll or a vigorous jog. I find this a delightful place to visit and would highly recommend visiting and especially at sunset. (But if mozzies like you "don't forget...More
