Great walk around the lake which is mostly in bush until you come out at viewing points which are great. Highly recommended

Easy short walk around the lake, we had a little bit of breeze but at the far end of the lake mirror calm and got some awesome photos. In April there are little blue mushrooms, we were advised of these by the Fox Guiding staff and found about 10 while walking around the track, more good photos. Well worth the short drive off the main road and a good break from travelling, good toilets and the cafe at the end of the walk for a coffee. Well worth a visit.

Was lucky enough to visit when the blue mushrooms were out. A lovely walk on a still day. Took about 90 mins plus time in the cafe. Leave dogs at home. They are not allowed on walk.
