This walk takes you all around the lake with varied scenery along the way. There is an excellent geocache taking you around the walk.

We saw the first blackberries of the season and tasted them. There were only two fishermen and us during our visit. In the water are the remains of trees sticking out of the lake, this is much like we have seen in the Goulburn River in Victoria, Australia!
