Lake Nagambie welcomes new foreshore walk02/11/2023
Nagambie in Victoria’s Goulburn Valley region has welcomed a new waterfront pathway that stretches along the southern edge of Lake Nagambie, offering spectacular views across the water.
Lake Nagambie is a popular spot for fishing and sailing, canoeing, water skiing and swimming for locals and visitors alike and hosts numerous rowing and kayaking championships through the year.
The new pathway stretches 1.6 kilometres along the lake’s foreshore, offering expansive views over the water.
At 2.5 metres wide, the path is accessible for both walkers and cyclists and provides a safe and accessible link between the Nagambie Regatta Centre, the Lakes Leisure Park and the town centre.
The path features concrete on-land walkways and over-water boardwalks which minimise the environmental impacts by protecting vegetation along the shoreline.
Seating is located at intervals to allow people to stop and take in the lake views, while solar lighting makes the path accessible at night, offering views of the water after dark.
Only 90 minutes from Melbourne, Nagambie sits on the shores of Lake Nagambie which is fed by the Goulburn River and was created by the construction of the Goulburn Weir between 1887-90.
Nagambie is surrounded by several wineries in the neighbouring communities of Tabilk, Mitchellstown and Murchison, which benefit from the cooler climate caused by the regional lakes and lagoons.
The town is also well known as the birthplace of champion racehorse, Black Caviar, who was born in 2006 at Gilgai Farm in Nagambie and grew up on the Goulburn River property.
Strathbogie Shire Council is running a photography campaign calling on people to share their photos of the new foreshore walk. Photos can be submitted by visiting www.share.strathbogie.vic.gov.au
