Karkarook Park


Karkarook Park

Karkarook Park in Melbourne's south-eastern suburbs has been developed as a recreation and wetland area.

Karkarook Park is revegetated with indigenous plants, the 15 hectare lake is a good spot for canoeing, kayaking or sailing. Explore the park on foot or bike on 6km of trails. Take the dog for a walk. Or try your luck fishing for Rainbow Trout or Red Fin.

Dragonfly Picnic Area
The Dragonfly Picnic Area is a great spot for a barbecue picnic with friends and family. There are electric barbecues, picnic tables (both undercover and in the open), toilets and an observation tower that overlooks the lake.

Lake Trail
The Lake Trail goes all the way around the lake. It's a great walk to explore the park. There's a small jetty along the trail - a good spot to drop a line and try your luck fishing. Bird watchers can take a short detour off the trail to visit the birdhide for a spot of bird watching.

Wetlands Walk
On the Warragul Road side of the lake, the Wetlands Trail runs through the wetlands. This is a great walk to observe the local birdlife.

Opening Hours: Open access at all times. Karkarook Park is easily accessible by vehicle as it is located alongside Warrigal Road. Take buses 700 and 701 from Oakleigh or Mentone

Cost: Free
