    Event description


    Join us for another awesome Social Walk with Dan as we explore the majestic grounds of Cardinia Reservoir and walk along the dam wall overlooking the stunning expanse of water enjoying the gorgeous views from the lookouts that cover the surrounding district. Wildlife is highly likely with kangaroos hopping through the fields we'll be walking through and some hikers have even managed to see deer there recently.

    Our Social Walks are a great way to get outside, get your body moving and make some amazing new friends along the way!

    Duffies Lookout Loop via Cardinia Reservoir Foreshore + Kangaroo Viewing Trail is around 8km and is a fun and easy hike for beginners and newbies with a couple of minor inclines throughout the day! We will be walking through beautiful bushland which changes to the dam wall overlooking the water as well as open fields where kangaroos and wallabies hop about.  

    The trail is roughly 8km and should take around 2 - 2.5 hours to complete depending on our pace. The trail is fairly easy with only around 150m of elevation. 

    All ages and fitness levels are welcome to this event. 

    This is a really great trail with an excellent chance to see a wide variety of environments and unique views you won't get anywhere else.
