A lovely park and picnic area set below a dam. It is a mix of English garden set in an Australian bushland. Good amenities with BBQ stoves, toilets, tap water, walkways and kids' playground. Wheelchair accessible in sections of the park. A great place for...More

My wife and I took our elderley parents for a quick visit on a Sunday lunch time. The location was once very beautiful but has been left to rot by, I am guessing, the Victorian Government. There are picnic tables and barbecues available but the...More

A great place for a family day out and barbecue, set in grassy areas and among native and non-native trees with abundant bird wildlife. But this year we were disappointed by an apparent lack of maintenance. The tap near our favourite bbq was removed so...More

We visited the reservoir park in the early evening. The dam wall is impressive but the forest tracks are not well signed or well kept. We actually did a great loop track but it would have been more relaxing with better signs - especially as...More

On the way to Marysville on Maroondah Highway it was a nice place to break journey and unwind. Selover's Lookout is a fabulous spot to see the picturesque Maroondah reservoir and its surrounding ranges.

It is possible to push a pram from the carpark at the corner of Maroondah Rear Access Road and Henderson loop Road, for maybe 150 metres to the grassy areas below the dam wall. If you are looking for a place for toddler... More

Due to storm damage, a large part of the park is cordoned off, though you can still walk on the dam wall. That said, there are still a number of pergolas and gas BBQs that are accessible in the park.
