Delightful venue for a spring/winter/autumn picnic.
Breathe the air, watch the ducks, talk to strangers.

This is a great family spot with a nice walk around the lake. There was plenty of wildlife on the water and a small playground for the kids.

A nice walk...

... around the lake on a day that was not too windy. This is popular with the locals for picnics and play! YMMV

Back to "normal"

The lake was absolutely depleted over the summer. The fish suffered and the ducks had to find elsewhere.
After much-needed rain, the lake is all but full and the wildlife is returning.
Now ... if we could just stop people throwing bread rolls into the water, which only encourages the carp ...

Lake Alexandra is almost my best place in NSW. Every time we are passing through Mittagong we always stop for a walk around the lake. there are many birds to see as well as turtles, snakes and ducks by the million, it is quite unique. WE love the lake.

Just a very quiet place where peace overcomes. The beauty of this area is equal to anywhere else in this great country.

Southern Highlands Time-out
Jul. 2019
Now let's just say you are enjoying a really busy long weekend down in the Southern Highlands of NSW and you need a quick time out.
Maybe the kids need a bit of a run around out of the car... or its just the two of you and you've bought lunch and a drink from the one of the nearby cafes (like Rose) or a bakery.. well this is really pleasant spot sneak off to...

Why? cos its just so pleasant and peaceful. This autumn we just sat in the sunshine and watched the big fountain jet play over the water out in the middle of the Lake , with all those lovely golden rust and red autumn leaves on the trees at the lakefront, giving way to the big gum trees marching off up the hillside to Mount Alexandra in the background.

There are convenient benches, a play area for the kids somewhere to walk the dog...the usual raucous Aussie bird life

and here's the thing... if you eaten lunch, slurped down flat white, had a play with the kids and the dog or just vegged out and contemplated your navel for the requisite half and hour there is still a really serious bush walk a hop skip and a jump away... (tracks all well signed) just up the VERY BIG bushy hill... in fact you could go for hours into Nattai National park if you had a mind to.. or just get a bit huffed and puffed walking up to the lookout at the top of Alexnadra that faces out across the blue mountains to Katoomba some 50KMs away.

And if that's not enough remember you are less than 20 minutes untroubled drive away from at least 3 good cellar doors: Tertini, Artemis and Joadja, just tucked away down the road and round the corner (Old Hume Highway signs to Berima will take you to straight to Artemis *(which also does a really nice wood fired pizza served in an outdoor setting if the kids are still peckish and energetic), then make a right turn up onto the Wombeyan Caves Road and follow the wine trail.

If you want to stay on Caves Road to see the caves themselves, well you had better have a 4WD and some time to spare....but that's another story
