Description

The walk around the reservoir takes a leisurely 1.5 hours. There are views to kunanyi / Mount Wellington and Mount Direction from the Eastern side and bush views around the perimeter. The wide track is mostly flat but undulates around the eastern bay and at the approach to the northern end of the reservoir. The reservoir provides drinking water for Southern Tasmania so ensure you protect the water quality by being environmentally responsible.
