Newport Lakes is a beautiful bushland oasis with undulating walking and running tracks and even a self-guided 40 minute nature trail. It's hard to imagine that this place was transformed from a former bluestone quarry and rubbish tip. With its two big lakes, lots of native birds and grassy spots for picnics, it's a wonderful place to bring the fam for a day of wildlife watching and native plant spotting. There's a small playground area and Pavey Reserve is just across the way if your crew need to blow off more steam. 

Mamma's special mentions:  If you enjoy a slice of nature alongside your park play, Mamma says consider planning your next adventure to Yarraville Gardens or Cherry Lake.

the nitty gritty

bbq - park benches - some free parking - picnic tables - public toilets nearby - lots of shade - shelter - sports oval - pram access is tricky
