Lake Benalla Walking Track
Lake Benalla offers endless opportunities for recreation and relaxation.
Along Lake Benalla’s tranquil 4.25 kilometre track you will find inspiration in diverse and picturesque landscapes from the serene lake to meandering rivers, the exquisitely manicured Botanical Gardens to remnant River Red Gum forest, the Indigenous Community Garden to Jaycee Island with its magnificent towering Moreton Bay Figs and exotic Bunya Bunya Pines.
Lake Benalla provides habitat for numerous birds from ducks and pelicans to cockatoos and kookaburras. You may spot the Rakali, a native water-rat, echidnas, wallabies, or at dusk, a platypus or even a sugar glider.
Depending on your pace, and how often the scenery calls for yet another stop to take in the sights and sounds, the walk can take between half an hour and ninety minutes to complete.
Explore the arts and heritage of Benalla with the outstanding Benalla Art Gallery, the Costume and Kelly Museum, the eye-catching Gaudi-esque Ceramic Mural and the Analemmatic Sundial – all positioned conveniently along the lake.
The local skate park, BMX track, the Benalla Aquatic Centre, children’s playgrounds, exercise stations, and numerous shady picnic and barbecue areas offer fun and fitness, rest and relaxation for all the family.
