Newport Lakes Reserve - Review

Newport Lakes Park is a huge bushland park that offers as a great place for family picnics or leisurely solitary walks. The park was created from a former bluestone quarry and rubbish tip site in the middle of Newport. As the name suggests, the centre of attraction is the lake around which over 200 species of plants and 85 species of birds are found. In order to cover two kilometres nature trail around the lake, it takes around 40 minutes to cover. To help you self-guide, you can get hold of the brochure about the trail that is available from the on-site nursery.

Newport Lakes Reserve, Melbourne Reviews

  • They've done an excellent job converting the area to parkland. You can walk around the lake and enjoy nature. There's also an off leash area with plenty of space.

  • Such a good spot for dogs! Excellent place to socialize your pups and get them off-leash safely. Highly recommend at sunset.

  • Nice little patch of nature not far from the city. Good little picnic spots with playground for the kids and toilets. I love the little native Australian plant nursery next door as well.

  • Very nice place to visit, great park for kids, dogs aloud only on a leash (BUT they are working on a leash free area. ....coming soon ).Beautiful walk around the lakes or you can run. Very picturesque.

  • Excellent place for the family outing and specialty the kids safe place for walking
