Very pretty reservoir about 10 minutes from the Whittlesea city centre, with picnic, barbecue and toilet facilities. Unfortunately the whole reservoir is completely fenced off due to blue-green algae ,you can still see the whole area the higher you go but otherwise it is just a peaceful picnic stop.
