Karkarook Park

National Parks and Reserves

Karkarook Park is a recreational and environmental oasis, revegetated with indigenous plants. It’s the perfect spot to connect with nature, watch the sunset across the lake and count how many different birds you can see from the pier.

The 15-hectare lake is a haven for canoeing, kayaking or sailing. There’s a small jetty along the trail — a good spot to drop a line and try your luck fishing. Get active and walk, jog or cycle around the 6km network of trails in the park.

Enjoy a picnic with friends and family. Make use of the free electric barbecues or bring your own picnic to enjoy by the lake. At Dragonfly Picnic area, you’ll find a playground and an observation tower that looks over the lake.

There’s plenty of space for you to walk, play and relax with your dog at Karkarook Park.

Karkarook Park is part of an Aboriginal cultural landscape in the traditional Country of the Bunurong People.

Conditions can change in parks for many reasons. Before your visit, please check the relevant park page on the Parks Victoria website for updated changes of conditions and familiarise yourself with important bushfire safety information to ensure your experience is safe and enjoyable.
