Newport Lakes, Newport

This page is a chapter in the book Victoria.


Newport Lakes is a revegetated quarry that was reclaimed for use as a reserve and park. It consists of 2 main lakes that are split down the middle with a narrow rock walk way. The park has been replanted with many native species and as such contains varying species of birds.

Ducks and Swans have become quite used to people at this location and can be approached with ease. The park is also great for the more common Honeyeater species (New Holland, White-plumed, Red Wattlebird etc) and Lorikeets are often abundant. Swift Parrots are also regular winter inhabitants.
