Oatlands Revisited

Keith stopped here in Oatlands last April when the weather was much worse than now so this time we have a chance to walk a little and explore.

The camping area here is divided between lake front and a “paddock” opposite which between them can accommodate a lot of campers. Space at the lakeside is limited but when we arrived there was no-one on the grassed area. As soon as we pulled up we were welcomed by what turned out to be the only two geese at the lake!

Despite the scarcity of other geese the lake is teeming with other bird life including a large colony of Black Swans; many Coots and a smaller number of Ducks plus the occasional Plover (Lapwing) and other species.


Starting from the vicinity of the Camping Area is the Lake Dulverton Waking Track which takes you around to the Southern end of the Lake and then continues on to the old Railway Station at Parratah, a total of 7kms. We walked the first section to the Lake’s end, a return trip of about 8kms. This records the various views along the way. We actually start back a little near the old main road and the original stone dam and past the first Bund Wall around the shore to the Second Bund Wall adjacent to Mary’s Island, and finally to the Southern end with a view across the water to the historic “Bellevue” property
