Attractions

Enjoy a leisurely walk or bike ride along the banks of Beaufort Lake. Discover the Koori Art Trail, which features 12 installations that depict the traditional flora and fauna of the area, and pays homage to the traditions, customs and stewardship of the local lands.

The Koori Art Trail is an initiative of HM Prison Langi Kal Kal on behalf of the Department of Justice and Regulation and is supported by the Pyrenees Shire Council. The artwork, by indigenous prisoners, is provided to both community and visitors to celebrate the indigenous history of this country. The traditional owners of the region are the Wadawurrung, Dja Dja Wurrung and the Djab tribes.

The walk starts at the Boat Ramp, next to Beaufort Secondary College, which you can access via the Goldfields Recreation Reserve. You can enjoy a leisurely two kilometres walk around the lake, taking your time to view the artwork. There are lots of spots to sit if you need to take a breather or if you simply want to take in the views because they can be spectacular. This is a great walk if you enjoy bird watching. Please note the Lake can be seasonally dry.

You can extend your walk into the neighbouring reserve where you will find a network of walking tracks and a series of exercise equipment.
