Toorourrong Reservoir Park (Kinglake National Park)


Toorourrong Reservoir Park (Kinglake National Park)

Come together with friends and family at Toorourong Reservoir. With large grassy open spaces for children to play, wooded areas to explore and generous facilities, this is a perfect place to gather.

Enjoy a picnic or barbecue in the company of kangaroos and embark on a scenic walk through the tranquil reserve. Take a walk along the dam wall to learn more about the reservoir, the park and its history. Using heritage bluestone and granite blocks from the original dam, the Yarn Circle is a unique place where family, friends and community groups can share stories and tell a yarn.

A peaceful memorial of remembrance on the edge of the lily pond is dedicated to the community members from Whittlesea and surrounds whose lives were lost in the bushfires on 7 February 2009 – Black Saturday. The heritage rotunda located at the entrance carpark is the only structure to survive the 2009 bushfires. It has been restored and now provides information about those fires, community recollections on how the park was before the fires and other park information.

The Park has many picnic areas available with shelters, picnic tables and electric and wood barbecues. Please bring your own wood. Alternatively, bring your own portable barbecue and use the disposal unit provided to dispose of coal and heat beads.

Visitor Tips: Car parking is provided 280m along a sealed path from the picnic area and toilet facilities. All abilities access is provided throughout the park, including accessible toilets and an all abilities access ramp from the main carpark. No rubbish bins are provided, so please take other rubbish home with you.

Opening Hours: Toorourrong Reservoir Park is open daily, including weekends and public holidays from 9.00am – 5.00pm. From November until the end of Eastern Daylight Savings time the park is open from 9.00am – 8.00pm.
