  • A great place for a family day out and barbecue, set in grassy areas and among native and non-native trees with abundant bird wildlife. But this year we were disappointed by an apparent lack of mainte...  more »
  • Good place for a pick nick or BBQ if you don't mind large crowds. We wanted to go for a walk but after searching for the track,for 1/2 hour we gave up.  more »

  • Such a beautiful park. I plan on coming back some day to use the bbq and picnic facilities. There is plenty of shade as well as open spaces, seating and tables, rotundas and playground equipment. You can walk right across the top of the dam to get some amazing views and see the sundial. If you're athletic try the Rose Steps which ascend 250m to a viewing point at the top. There is signposted information about the construction of the dam and parkland as well as the history of the area and information about the water usage. THE WATER HERE IS DRINKING WATER, NO SWIMMING IS ALLOWED.
  • A great place to visit and especially if you love a good walk. The views are spectacular and so also the drive from Melbourne. If you are an ornithologist you will enjoy the variety of birds. Great views of the dam from the top.
  • A good place to visit. Lots of places for picnic. Interesting examples of 1940 - 1950 architecture and landscaping in the park under the dam , but it needs some TLC.
  • I've loved this place since I was a kid. Great walking tracks, especially when you head up the hill into the National Park. And the trees are so tall, and there's the occasional one that's still amazing to climb - although I'm sure I'd have gone higher when I was younger.
  • The dam area is impressive ! From the winding stone paths and gardens. To the impressive walk across the Dam wall. The park offers a great destination for family's or couples as apart of a Yarra Valley day out. If your lucky the dam has an amazingly spectacular overflow waterfall but this is a rare site.
