Cherry Lake (Altona)



Cherry Lake is a popular place for weekend barbecues and for daily walks. The lake, which is managed by Melbourne Water, is a flood retarding basin created in the 1970ís to help prevent flooding of the rapidly expanding Altona residential area.

A 2.3 kilometre walking and cycling trail circuits the lake, and takes the visitor to the western and northern surrounds, which contain interesting salt marsh habitats used by a range of water birds.

The lake provides habitats for a range of native birds including pelicans, swans and swamp hens. The Altona Skipper Butterfly finds precious habitat in the stands of Chaffy Saw Sedge at the western end of the lake. Waterbirds can be viewed from a bird hide.

Facilities include toilets, car park, picnic shelter, playground, drinking taps, seating and free BBQs.
