At the northern end of the lake, many people are curious about two brick walls on the lake's edge. They are the remains of Cashins Mill, which was built in the 1850s to mill wheat grown in the area. The mill was powered by a water wheel fed by the Olinda Creek, which now flows through the lake.
Also at the northern end of the lake, a large grassed area is an off-leash dog area. A few minutes watching the antics of these free-range canines and their owners can be quite amusing, particularly when Fido refuses to fetch.
About halfway along the eastern shore, you can veer off and a slightly uphill path will take you in around and over the wetlands in series of boardwalks. In the wetlands are placed many nesting/breeding boxes to provide a safe haven for many of the lake's birdlife.
This Pelican thought that the nesting box was a resting box.
On any given day, humans of all ages can be seen taking in the scenery around the lake. From newborns in arms, youngsters in strollers, toddlers toddling, cyclists cycling, joggers jogging and the walkers walking on the mild side, ambling around enjoying moderate exercise and the fresh air.
