Painkalac Reservoir, located north of Moggs Creek, formerly supplied water to the nearby townships of Aireys Inlet and Fairhaven. With these towns now connected to the diverse and secure greater Geelong water supply network, Painkalac Reservoir has been opened to the public for walking, riding, bushwalking, bird watching, picknicking and recreational fishing.

Join us to explore the reservoir and learn about the facilities.

We will meet at the Distillery Creek picnic area off Bambra Road at 1.30 pm for a 1.45 pm walk in. The walk to the reservoir is approximately three kilometres and is expected to take about 45 minutes. We will also be running a mini-bus.

To register your interest and assist us with catering, please contact 1300 656 007 or email.

Please note: as the reservoir is surrounded by the Great Otway National Park, dogs are not allowed.
