Quarry Lake

Quarry Lake is a reclaimed mining quarry turned into a recreational park with a depth of up to 100m in places.

Awesome small Alpine lake with a sandy beach at one end. Great for family or anyone just getting into paddling.

The lake is really sheltered and would also be really good for practicing skills in a controlled environment.

Also has picnic areas, toilets, trails, swimming area, and off-leash dog park near by.

Great views of Mount Rundle, Ha Ling Peak, and the Fairholme Range.
