Yan Yean Reservoir Park

Yan Yean Reservoir Park is a great location to spend a lazy summer Sunday with the family. Enjoy a picnic with spectacular water views at the end carpark or grab some snags and cook up a BBQ with friends while the kids ride the bikes and explore the area. There’s plenty of space and picnic tables, rotundas and abundant parking make the park an ideal destination for a family outing with expansive water views.

There is also a lovely grassy and bushy wetlands area in the middle. You can often hear the frogs as you pass by and children can access the water’s edge for ponding activities!

Toilet facilities are located at both ends of the park and both have parenting amenities. The northern facilities are also wheelchair accessible.

Don’t forget to pack your binoculars and head into the extensive wetlands to see the abundant birdlife that lives and feeds in the area.

Stroll the easy walking trails along the water for views over the reservoir and towards the surrounding mountains, and unwind in the peaceful atmosphere of this tranquil, historic setting.
