Lake Murphy Conservation Park

Taroom, Banana Area

Nestled beneath the low Murphy's Range in the central highlands, Lake Murphy remains largely unchanged from the days when Europeans first passed this way.

Lake Murphy provides a seasonal refuge for waterbirds. This perched lake fills only when nearby Robinson Creek overflows, and has been dry five times in the past two centuries. The shaded, grassy campsites near Lake Murphy are a great place to spend the night and watch the sun set over the lake. Even when the lake is dry, this is a peaceful and beautiful spot.

Lake Murphy Conservation Park has one circuit track, which is four kilometres return and takes approximately one hour. Walk 300 metres from the picnic and camping area to the shores of Lake Murphy. A four kilometre circuit track skirts the lake's southern shore before following Robinson Creek through forest red gums and returning through woodland to the picnic area.

Lake Murphy is north of Taroom on the road to Expedition National Park.
