  • Toilets and playground nearby at Princes Park Playground
This gorgeous ornamental lake in Maryborough is celebrated for its resident swans, beautifully forested islands, scenic walking track and excellent visitor facilities. 

Princes Park Playground sits alongside the lake, where you will also find free electric barbecues, undercover areas, picnic tables, rubbish bins and a toilet block.

A well formed gravel walking/cycling track travels in a circuit around the lake with abundant varieties of trees and water birds to see along the way. This is a great spot for feeding the ducks with children! 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)
