Emerald Lake Park


Just a bit over an hour away, this park has it all! Ducks, water pedal bikes, BBQ’s, heaps of walking tracks, playground equipment, oh, and Puffing Billy! During the summer months there is even a lifeguard patrolled wading pool.


  • the lake, plenty of bird life, and there are always people fishing here as well. Also the water pedal boats are a bit of fun too.
  • there’s several play zones
  • walking tracks around the lake, to Puffing Billy and the kiosk
  • Plenty of shade for the hotter days

Jack liked:

the ducks! He is always happy to point and exclaim loudly whenever he’s around the ducks. The day we visited was boiling hot, and I think Jack wasn’t quite walking, so we didn’t stay for a play on the equipment. There’s heaps of shaded areas though and extremely family friendly. We  saw Puffing Billy but didn’t go on it – figured we’d wait for Jack to be a little older and appreciate it more. He wasn’t a fan of the noise from the train though.
