A family and pet friendly return walk of 2.5km

SUITABILITY
All ages. Great for walking or bike riding. Wide and flat pathways, great for prams and wheelchairs. Dogs on a leash are allowed.

HIGHLIGHTS
Lots of shady trees, with the bush to one side of the path. The walk passes the very well-maintained Dog Park, a great opportunity for the dog to have a run; with covered seating to watch from. The large open sports fields can be a hive of activity at the weekend, but otherwise a large grassy oval to relax on. Further on, pass by the Brightwater State School. (The walk finishes soon after at Kawana Way, return the same way.)

The walk can finish here at Kawana Way, returning past the school and sports oval. However, if there is a need for coffee, turn right onto the Kawana Way footpath and in about 50 m turn right for a pleasant stroll along Brightwater Boulevard, continuing straight ahead. At the second roundabout, and on your left, is the Brightwater Shopping Centre, while straight ahead is the Brightwater Tavern.
AFTERWARDS.
Join the walk around Brightwater Lake, from the original starting point turn left, and stroll on over to the Brightwater shops for coffee or a snack. If the little ones haven't had enough exercise, there is a big playground there.
If you have completed the circuit, you will have already found the shops and the Tavern, ready to enjoy refreshments.

GETTING THERE.
Access by car is from the end of Lamatia Drive in Brightwater. Alternatively, it may be accessed on foot from the easterly end of Brightwater Lake. Note: There is no parking at the Kawana Way end.
