Clermont, Isaac Area
The Hoods Lagoon and Century Park are situated in the township of Clermont. The township of Clermont was established on the Northern Banks of the Hoods Lagoon in 1862, after the discovery of gold. A memorial plaque at the southern entrance of the Lagoons honours the victims of the 1916 devastating great flood that destroyed the entire business sector and 65 people perished. A marker on the tree depicts the 14 foot six inch level of the flood.
Today, this area is a beautiful spot for a family picnic or to just relax and watch the wildlife on the lagoon. The park offers a relaxing venue with barbecue, picnic tables and toilet facilities. There are a number of footpaths and boardwalks around the Lagoon enabling visitors to explore the numerous memorials which have been constructed over the past few years.
