Stopped for a picnic on our fabulous puffing billy trip. Nice playgrounds and kids enjoyed the water bikes. Reasonable shop with drinks and ice creams and some take away options too. Really enjoyed the miniature railway.

Went to this park (visiting for Pugging Billy) and was blown away by what a beautiful area this is.

There is a gorgeous lake at the entrance with Aqua paddle bikes you can hire (not sure about the prices). Loads of gorgeous walking tracks, a miniature model railway and beautiful picnic spots.

There is toilets and a cafe at the Puffing Billy station (the train is worth a look even if you aren't taking the journey).

Not many stunning places around with terrific facilities that you can visit for a small car parking fee. Thus is one of the few. An absolutely beautiful environment, with gorgeous walking trails.

Emerald Lake and it's surrounding park is one of my favourite places. We will quite often visit here on a weekend drive and just relax in all of nature's beauty. It is so joyful to watch families of different ages enjoying the many facilities including BBQs, covered picnic areas, play and exercise equipment, swimming in the public pool in summer, and aqua bikes on the lake. Puffing Billy steam train is a major attraction for many but for us it is really just the beauty of the surrounds. It is just so relaxing and pretty in every season and you are also allowed to take your dog as long as it is on a leash which is definitely an added bonus.

Love the area in all seasons. The walks are beautiful when you get away from the lake also. Try walking towards Emerald on the Fern gully track and have your breath taken away by the magnificent fern trees. Take the track to Cockatoo and the flora is stunning in its own right. If you are lucky like i have been you may even come across wallabies, echindas and the numerous birds that call this area home.
You can park near the Emerald museum for free and walk to the lake.
