Sanatorium Lake is listed as being very reflective and it is but it's very small to be called a lake, more like a farm dam.

A nice walk, well worth doing. Good to see the lake, great for a picnic and very nice after a decent snowfall. Just need to be careful with young children.

Came across this lake while touring around the Macedon area. The lake is man-made and is accessed via Lions Head Road (a gravel road). A short and easy stroll (about 250 metres) from the main car park takes you to an information display and lake....More
