Lake Connewarre- Our Benevolent Neighbour

 

Located on the Bellarine Peninsular, approx. 6kms from the Land Sales office on Barwon Heads Rd, Lake Connewarre State Game Reserve is a complex wetland ecosystem linked to the sea by the Barwon River. The Reserve is dominated by two very different lakes, Lake Connewarre and Reedy Lake and in 1983 the Reserve was declared by the Victorian Government as a “wetland of international significance” under the Ramsar convention.

Lake Connewarre harbours extensive seagrass meadows which provide important spawning and nursery sites for fish and this includes species specially adapted to fluctuations in salinity from full saltwater to full freshwater. Considered to be a significant waterbird breeding site and feeding ground, it supports large numbers of migratory waders and waterfowl and over 149 avian species have been recorded in the reserve along with 10,000 ducks and swans. Straw-necked Ibis and Yellow-billed Spoonbills also utilise breeding sites in the area.
Large numbers of Black Swans congregate most of the year on Lake Connewarre, while Pelicans and Caspian Terns can be found feeding on open water.

Enjoy a picnic -   Take the family and enjoy a picnic at Taits Point, with excellent panoramic views from viewing platforms.
Catch a fish-   A number of fishing platforms and a boardwalk provide good access to the river upstream at Barwon Heads. The main catches are Bream, Yellowed Eyed Mullet, Redfin and Mulloway.
Go boating – Taits Point has a boat ramp suitable for launching small craft – canoes, kayaks and small fishing boats. Sail boarding is also popular in the main Lake.

Located on our doorstep, Lake Connewarre, our ‘International celebrity’ simply adds to the wonderful way of life at Warralily.
