Lake Victoria is a picturesque lake in Maryborough Victoria. There's a well formed gravel walking/cycling track which travels in a loop around the lake with many varieties of trees and water birds to see along the way.

In the middle of the lake there are three islands in a line. There are a lot of ducks and swans living here, this is a great spot for feeding the ducks with children.

Alongside the lake to the east is the Princes Park Playground, where you will find free electric barbecues in undercover picnic areas, tables, rubbish bins and a toilet block.

The walk also takes you past the Maryborough Caravan Park, the outdoor swimming pool, and various sporting facilities including ball courts and an oval.

Woolworths is located a short walk away on the other side of the swimming pool, which is convenient for getting picnic/barbecue supplies or food for the ducks.

Please note that feeding ducks bread is detrimental to their health, try some of these more appropriate alternatives:

  • Corn (canned, frozen or fresh)
  • Duck pellets (sold online and at pet stores)
  • Lettuce, other greens (torn into small pieces)
  • Frozen peas (defrosted)
  • Oats (rolled or instant)
  • Seeds (including birdseed or other varieties)
