Natural Feature
“Take a 5 min drive up to the Gorgeous Blue Lake and explore the natural wonders of the Lakes area. You can take the walk right around the lake which will be about 4.2km. Its an easy stroll if you wander round anti clockwise, but if you want a challenge, take the other way round and up the long hill. Lots of walker and runners take this as a daily exercise. You can also park your car at any parking points around the blue lake, and get out take in the view from the platforms. Dont forget to pop into the kiosk for a coffee and a sit down, make sure you say hi to Trish and Gary. Gary also runs the tours of the pumping station, so you can see how the water is moved into the town for our supply. Lots to explore around this area, even down to Leg Of Mutton Lake which is a dry lake with a beautiful walking track, little bit of a hill though.”

“Make sure you pack some fruit and veg in a container before you go, so you can feed the friendly possums that are living in the sink hole. They are cute, and if your lucky, they will hang out with you so you can hand feed them and get a selfie!”

Café
“LOVE their coffee!!! A bustling cafe that does it all. You can grab something on the run or sit in and soak up the vibe. Greek, italian and everything in between. They bake their own bread, so if you love your delicious carbs, this is the cafe for you. You can buy a loaf and bring it home to savour later! PS, their cocktails are delicious. Recommend the Long Island Iced Tea!! beware, you may only need one!”
