Moondarra State Park and Reservoir

Just to the north of the Yallourn North boundary is Moondarra Reservoir, nestled in Tyers Park. It services Latrobe Valley’s water supply and is a popular spot for sight-seeing and day trips. Built in the early 1960s, it supplies the Latrobe Valley region with some of the world’s finest drinking water. The area offers spectacular views, and can easily be found on the way to Walhalla. Several back roads make the trip much shorter if you are feeling a bit adventurous and don’t mind getting off the black top.

Further afield, Moondarra State Park reserve is just a short drive to the north west. It was proclaimed in 1986 and affords 6,992 hectares of native vegetation. The area is welcoming for Scenic drives, bushwalks, picnicking, swimming, camping, fishing and nature study. Some roads are suitable for bike riding.
