"Lakeside Picnic Park !!" Day Trip - Dandenong Ranges National Park Tip by grantravel

  Lakeside Picnic Park
by grantravel

This Park incorporates valuable remnant native forest and eucalypt plantations. It is also a wildlife refuge which has attracted numerous bird species.

Some of the park's tracks are for walkers only while others are also open to cyclists.

Swimming is permitted only from the beach in the lakeside area and non-powered boating is permitted in certain delineated areas.

A great park for couples or families alike, with plenty to do for the kids. Apparently the waterslides are not functioning any more, which is a shame. Have a go on the water pedal bikes!!

Address: Head off the Princes Hwy along Clow Street
Directions: Then turn left into Stud Rd. After 1.7km turn right into Heatherton Rd. Go east for about 8km then turn left into the Belgrave-Hallam Rd. 2km along this road turn left into Horswood Rd which leads through the main entrance.
