Such a beautiful place that is so worth the viewing - especially garden lovers. The grounds and park facilities are beautiful, the external damn wall amazing with its construction and the top view walk magnificent. I could imagine weddings, gatherings and events in this parkland....More

A lovely walk across the dam wall that cleared the cobwebs and gave us some stunning views across the water. Great to have a picnic in excellent facilities, but plagued by bin chickens (Ibis!), which spoiled our lunch. And no, we did not feed them!...More

I havent been here for years. Was pleasantly surprised. Great place to see some trees near the dam that have beautiful autumn leaves.

It is free and there are walks to undertake. Close to Healesville. It was raining when we were there so not as enjoyable as it might have been but certainly worth a visit if you are staying nearby.

Due to storm damage, a large part of the park is cordoned off, though you can still walk on the dam wall. That said, there are still a number of pergolas and gas BBQs that are accessible in the park.
