The Lake is an artificial man made lake and lush wetland, all surrounded by green parklands and native trees.

There are almost 100 hectares of land as well as the beautiful lake itself.

This has to be one of the best children's playgrounds in Melbourne's parks and gardens There are climbing frames, monkey bars, swings, flying foxes and so much more.

This has recently been surrounded with a childproof safety fence. Two fantastic puzzle cable climbing towers are a real treat to kids of all ages.

I have even seen grown men tackle the cable mountains, the kids love trying to reach the top and once there hopefully they tackle the climb down.

Families come from miles around to enjoy this top quality recreation facility.

It is the best place for a cheap weekend break.

You can walk or ride your bike around the lake.

On every day of the week there are adults and kids doing the healthy thing.

The walk is very easy, phew, no steep hills to climb and always with a beautiful view of the lake and surrounding district to inspire the soul.

The birdlife around the lake is everywhere so watch out for your picnic sandwiches as the birds actually fly up onto the tables for a free feed!

Lots of different clubs use the lake and parklands.

There are Radio Yacht Races (see the link below for more information)these are held on some Saturdays, bring your own and have some fun.

If you are really interested in a great family activity, try your hand at sailing a Radio Controlled Yacht.

Contact the Lillydale Radio Yacht Club for more information.

There are canoe enthusiasts, kayakers and you can also sail yourself around the lake at your leisure.

Families can try their hand at fishing, there are fishing contests always being held on the banks of the lake.

In Summer it is great to sit on the sand at the man made beach and watch the kids building sand castles and paddling in the cool water.

The Lake is a great place to take the family for a picnic day trip.

The facilities include.....

  • Electric BBQ's
  • Picnic Tables and Benches
  • Covered Picnic Areas
  • Toilets
  • Plenty of Parking throughout the park
  • 10 Kilometers of shared tracks
  • Community Room
  • Meeting Facilities

There is usually an ice-cream vendor parked near the playground on a weekend for that extra treat.

If you happen to run out of a few bits and pieces for that delicious BBQ, no worries as Lillydale Shopping center is only 5 minutes away from Lillydale lake.

There is also a local milkbar just up the road near the roundabout.

The Lake is the best place to go to clear out the cobwebs, wear out the kids and just get away from the stresses of everyday life.

Put the visit into your calender no matter what your thing is.

Flying a kite, kicking a ball, whatever, it's a great place to head to for a last minute getaway and really is a beautiful place for all the family to enjoy.

And Don't Forget To Be Sun Smart

You cannot feel or see UV (Ultraviolet radiation). We can see the sun's light and we can feel the sun's warmth (the infrared radiation). Our senses don't pick up on UV radiation and this is why it is so damaging.

Right across Australia this UV radiation varies, it being determined by the time of day, time of year, the weather including cloud cover, how close to the equator the position is and other considerable scientific factors.
