Sitting pretty at Green Lake Regional Park

With restrictions easing and lockdowns less likely, it was time to head off somewhere a little further from home.

So here I am at Green Lake, near Sea Lake. And what a pretty place it is. Although it’s on the small side, there’s more than enough room for people to get out on kayaks and inflatables. Apparently you can water ski here too.

The lake is surrounded by a thin sandy beach and lots of seaweed (which is slightly gross to walk through). It’s tucked away in what remains of a forest of mallee trees. A lovely place to walk.

As a thick cloud of flies encircled me when I arrived, I was a little unsure about my choice of location. But within an hour or so, things had settled down and I could appreciate the beautiful view of Green Lake in front of where I’d camped. Kate C joined me later in the afternoon, and although there were plenty of other campers here, they were almost exclusively grey nomads (yes, I know I am one now) and therefore quiet.

At $20 a night for a powered site, with new and clean facilities, this is a little gem. Note to self: bring an inflatable next time.
