Skinks are particularly common in the area; these are little lizards that tend to scurry along the ground. They are harmless, so there is no need to worry. Large Lace Monitor lizards are occasionally seen; these are bigger ground-dwelling reptiles that run towards trees when they are disturbed. Avoid removing wood and timber when you see them because these serve as homes for lizards and the many other species that thrive here.
Whether you’re interested in bushwalking, camping, cycling, or just taking in the outdoors, the reservoir is ideal for visiting throughout the year. Amenities found within the area include picnic tables and chairs, wood-fired barbecues, walking paths, toilets, shades, information signs, and climbing logs.
