We cycled around the lake and stopped for afternoon tea at the Art Gallery which overlooks the lake. We also walked part of the way the next day. Very pleasant.

What a wonderful feature of Benalla, the Autumn colours and reflections in the lake are amazing. It is an easy walk, about 4 kms if you follow the entire walking track

As the walk is a circuit, once you start you are committed to walk for at least 30 minutes. There are a number of crossing points and islands to explore. I was impressed with the variety of bird life that could be seen at close...More
