Goldfields Reservoir

Goldfields Reservoir was built in 1862 and was Maryborough's former water supply. It is now used for recreation, boating, swimming and fishing. There are three picnic areas, one by the main car park (with a wood fire BBQ), another part way around the walking track to the left (wood fire BBQ), and one more part way around the walking track to the right (electric BBQ, 20c coin operated). There are picnic tables in all three picnic areas. Rubbish bins are available in the main picnic area and the one to the right of the lake. The electric BBQ picnic area is also accessible via Maryborough-Ballarat Road. The walking track circles the entire reservoir, and is about a 1.7 km easy, pram friendly, scenic walk. The track features multiple bridges, interesting hand made wooden barriers, wetland areas and water views. Toilets are beside the main car park, as well as a caravan Dump Ezy facility.
