Today it is Beechworth's main water supply.
Once the scene of annual rowing regattas, the lake and surrounding bushland is a treat for nature lovers, offering habitat to a rich diversity of animal and birdlife. The lake can be accessed by a five kilometre walking track or by car.
Pack yourself a picnic and take in the beautiful sites and sounds around the lake.
Fishing is allowed. For more details check with the Beechworth Visitor Information Centre. Boating and swimming is prohibited.
