As the walk is a circuit, once you start you are committed to walk for at least 30 minutes. There are a number of crossing points and islands to explore. I was impressed with the variety of bird life that could be seen at close hand, including Wood Ducks, Eastern Rosellas, Blue Wrens, Sulphur Crested Cockatoos. You soon forget that... More

Benalla lake is surrounded by a beautiful, clean walking track which is an easy one-hour to complete. Half of it goes through bushland where I have seen wallabies, snakes, echidnas, platypus and a multitude of waterbirds. The other half goes past the art gallery, across the lesser-used stockbridge and back past the swimming pool. It is well-used by locals wanting... More

Either running or walking the trail offers much. Close to town with many entry points everyone can enjoy it.

Lots of amenities, BBQs', playgrounds, seats, views. The path goes right around the whole lake so excellent for strollers, bikes, scooters and wheelchairs.

this place has a very beautiful view. You can walk or jog on the walking track. Early morning walk/jog is great with the view of fountain in middle of the lake.

A very pleasant 4.25km closed loop walk so that you end up back at your starting point without having to backtrack. The walk is basically around Lake Benalla and takes in a bit of everything, beautifull lake views with lots of waterbirds, a long stretch of bush, past the art gallery, under a historic bridge, past a historic colonial era...

The lake is a good feature of Benalla and the walking track is a pleasant way to see the lake and the garden areas. Well worth taking time to do and you get a little different perspective of the township of Benalla which apart for the lake is a fairly ;bland;' type of town.

Thank Oldjack
