This side of the Laanecoorie Reservoir Weir is accessed off Weir Road, and offers spectacular views out over the Laanecoorie Reservoir toward Brownbill Reserve across the water. 

The reservoir and the adjacent Loddon River are great for fishing. 

Camping at this location is prohibited, but is available at the excellent Laanecoorie-Loddon River Recreation Reserve just down the road.

The weir itself is fenced off, but a steep walking track at the far end of the fence will bring you down to the edge of the water among some attractive rocks and trees.

A small area of bushland alongside the weir contains a picnic table and a bench seat. 

A walking track travels through this bushland back along the bank of the Loddon River (alongside Weir Road) toward the Laanecoorie-Loddon River Recreation Reserve - a well structured campground with picnic tables, toilets, rubbish bins, a boat ramp leading into the river, a dedicated tent area, and lots of room for caravans.


The Loddon River is home to many varieties of fish including Redfin, Trench, Goldfish and Carp. 

The Reservoir is also stocked regularly with Golden Perch and occasionally with Brown Trout. Murray Cod can also be caught in shallow areas. Try fishing for them at night with surface lures.

  • Bushwalking is an excellent way to get outdoors and exploring nature.
  • There are many great places throughout the Goldfields that offer gorgeous, panoramic views of the surrounding landscape.
  • Gold prospecting is the recreational act of searching for natural gold deposits in the ground using tools such as gold detectors, gold pans and gold sluices. The Goldfields region of Victoria is a popular destination for gold prospectors, with many of the world's largest alluvial gold nuggets found in the area!

Well worth the time to drop in and view the weir from this spot, picnic here or across the reservoir at Brownbill reserve.
