Enjoy the lovely shaded setting and peaceful surrounds

Formerly the site of a council quarry, Lake McIntyre is today a safe haven for birds. Over 50 species have been attracted to the lake including the Eurasian Coot, Black-Faced Cuckooshrike and Pacific Black Duck. These birds can be viewed either from platforms near the barbecue area or from hides along the walking trail.

A 20-minute walk will take you around the lake on an easy 1.3-kilometre path. Seats are provided in various locations for those who wish to stop, rest and admire the scenery. The walking trail, which incorporates a boardwalk and bridge, is suitable for all abilities. However, do leave your dogs at home as dog walking is not permitted. Also, no yabbying. Three sheltered gas barbecues with picnic tables and seats have been installed by local service clubs for your use. Flushable toilets, as well as ample parking spaces, are also available.

Lake McIntyre is located on Saleyards Road approximately four kilometres north of the township of Millicent. Open daily from sunrise to sunset, its lovely shaded setting and peaceful surrounds are sure to please. So, make sure it's on the itinerary next time you're in the Limestone Coast.

It looks and sounds like a beaut spot Audrey. Well worth the diversion if passing by Millicent. Old quarries made wonderful, almost natural places to visit.

This little gem is a real pleasure to explore, well worth a visit even if it is not on your travel route.
