Features

Part of the scenic Lake Burrumbeet Park, this picnic area sits atop a hill overlooking the water. 

Picnic tables and bench seats are scattered alongside the parking area, with multiple seats offering beautiful views. 



You can make your way down the slope to the water, there are a couple of vague tracks heading down to the rocky shore. 


This spot is also located alongside the Lake Burrumbeet Nature Walk, a fascinating foreshore track which provides a great opportunity to spot the local wildlife. 

The walk begins on the other side of Lake Burrumbeet Park, alongside the boat ramp

An information sign near the picnic table displays the following text:


Local snakes

If you see or come across a snake:
  • Stay calm; do not approach the snake
  • Do not try to catch or kill the snake; it is illegal and you are more likely to get injured
  • If you are bitten by a snake, it can be identified by testing the bite area; there is no need to catch it*
  • Keep pets away
Victorian snakes

There are about 27 species of snake in Victoria, the majority of which are venomous. Some species of snake are quite variable in their colour and markings*, making it difficult to identify them visually.

Snakes are shy and normally try to avoid people. They may become defensive (or aggressive) if they are surprised, disturbed or feel threatened. 

If you wish to have a snake removed from your property, contact DEPI's Customer Service Centre and ask for a list of snake controllers in your area: 136 186

Snakes are protected under the Wildlife Act 1975.

Snakes are an important part of a healthy ecosystem; they help to reduce the populations of over-abundant pest species such as rats and mice.

First aid (www.avru.org):
  • Phone or send for medical help
  • Keep as still as possible
  • Apply pressure to the bitten area
  • Apply a splint or use a sling to restrict movement
Prevention:

To reduce the chance of encountering a snake around your home:
  • Keep grass short
  • Remove piles of rubbish and wood that are lying on the ground
  • Ensure aviaries and chicken sheds are rodent-proof
