This serene bushwalk through towering trees gives you the feeling you're a million miles away from the suburbs, though it's not too far away at all. Listening to the birds feeding on the eucalypt blossoms, looking up at the huge eucalypts, and seeing the lake shimmer in the sunshine is a wonderfully relaxing experience.
Birdwatchers will also enjoy admiring the waterbirds along the way, such as cormorants, white-faced herons, and white-breasted sea eagles. Wildflower-lovers should come in spring or in winter to look for orchids. And when you're on the shores of the lake, look carefully for sea turtles swimming around in the shallows.
