Anniversary & Basalt Lakes
30 min to 45 min
Starting from the visitor centre in Wilson Botanic Park (aka Berwick Botanical Gardens), this circuit walk pivots around Anniversary and Basalt Lake, passing by Hoo Hoo Lookout Tower and Alex Macleod Bird Hide along the way. Anniversary and Basalt Lakes offer a family-friendly trail through Wilson Botanic Park (aka Berwick Botanical Gardens). The mostly unsealed tracks provide stunning views of natural scenery. Along the track, there are plenty of turtles and rabbits, and the bird hide allows you to spot some exciting water birds. Additionally, there are toilets, a café, a playground with heaps of shade, and water fountains available to visitors. With a variety of track options, visitors can spend hours exploring without backtracking once. This haven in the city is a perfect escape for those looking for a scenic walk or a place to relax and unwind with family and friends. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
