Lilydale Lake

Lilydale Lake

We took a puppy for fostering care recently so now I’m always on lookout for dog-friendly walks. Dogs are allowed at the Lilydale Lake and we never been there before so we drove there to meet our friends on Sunday morning.

It is definitely a popular spot – our friends had a hard time finding a parking spot.

We walked clock-wise and took detour to the boardwalk which lead to a bird hide.

The trail was wide and flat, very easy to walk on.

With lamp posts on the way it definitely felt like a walk in a park, not a hike in nature.

The walk around the lake is about 2 km long. We decided to extend it to 4 km by walking along Olinda Creek.

Swimming in the lake was ‘not recommended’ but we saw a lot of kayaks.

All picnic tables under cover were taken but we still had a nice picnic on the grass in shadow under a tree.
