There is a nice park beside the lock where you can picnic. It is interesting to see the lock in action when the paddle steamers come in. Worth a look if you have never seen a lock in action before.

It was interesting to see the operation of the lock from the decks of the paddle wheeler Melbourne as the water level changed.

The notice boards around give you a good understanding of the lock and weir system. I was lucky to see it fill up, open the gates and ...... let a duck through :) The grounds around Lock 11 are beautiful.

Interesting to see how this works. You can get right up beside the boats and chat with the passengers.

The lock was in a great location and very interesting to see. Would be great to see a boat going through. Very scenic spot.

Hi Chris, I am not a hundred per cent sure the times but I will make some enquiries and get back to you ASAP. From memory I think it is around 2.00 p.m as we did the afternoon cruise.
