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.
We live locally and it's a lovely park. With a beautiful hike and great area to bbq.
Such a good spot for dogs! Excellent place to socialize your pups and get them off-leash safely. Highly recommend at sunset.
A place to escape the urban landscape located a short drive from the CBD. From lakeside, there's uninterrupted views of nature and the lakes, no buildings/houses in sight. Do yourself a favour and take your family for a visit.
A very nice place with small scenic view walks and a dog park, BBQ's and playgrounds.
