We have facilities in diverse and environmentally significant locations across central Gippsland. Where possible we provide public access for groups, families and individuals to visit and enjoy these unique environments.
Areas surrounding water storages can provide opportunities for bushwalking, barbeques, swimming, boating and fishing. Our treatment lagoons provide a safe habitat for a wide variety of water birds.
Moondarra Reservoir is our largest catchment and storage reservoir.
We maintain access to parts of our land at Moondarra Reservoir for bushwalking, walking or jogging and picnics. Facilities include barbecues, picnic tables, toilets and lookout areas. These are great areas to enjoy a range of individual or family activities.
North of the dam spillway is the start of the Wirilda walking track, a 14km bushwalk which generally follows the Tyers River to our pumping station at the Wirilda Environmental Park.
Shared water, shared facilities
We share water from major reservoirs operated by Southern Rural Water and contribute to support the public use of recreational facilities at these reservoirs.
Each of these reservoirs offers a unique recreation experience, from water skiing and sailing on the open water of Lake Glenmaggie to the smaller and quieter waters of Cowwarr Weir best suited to kayaking and canoeing.

Our storages and settlement ponds at our treatment plants attract a rich variety of birdlife. By special arrangement we can organise for groups to observe the birdlife or participate in bird counting surveys. We are also considering permanent and accessible bird hides at some sites. Enquire about accessing our sites.
Our support for an active community involves collaboration on projects aimed at increasing or protecting recreational activity and enjoyment. Recent projects have included:
