  • Lovely spot to have a coffee and a bite to eat overlooking the lake. These people are trying really hard to give the Lake cafe a go and are doing a wonderful job.  more »
  • Has a cafe, toilets, and plenty of parking. You can walk your dog, swim (maybe not during drought when it looks like a duck pond), walk, picnic. A good walk over the dam wall and down to the pump...  more »

  • Not what I was expecting from the photos. It was low tide when we visited in October and appeared smaller than expected. It’s probably good for a BBQ and families with kids as it has a play area with a flying fox (that was pretty cool). Not the best for site seeing.
  • With drought conditions the Lake is very low & a little muddy. The Council has taken the opportunity to drop loads of beach sand in though so it's a real beach! Great BBQ facilities, safe for kids, dogs are now allowed on a leash, a well planned walk around the whole lake, a kiosk that's sometimes open, and good parking. Well worth a lunch or afternoon trip, being so close to Orange.
