The walk along the shoreline has no discernible track, but the grassy area allows for exploring of relaxing, with incredible views across Lake Moogerah to Mount Greville.
From the shoreline, you can also see many other peaks, including Mount Mitchell, Cordeaux, Mathieson, Spicers Peak and Mount Alford.

From the starting point to cross the dam wall, you can also head up the stairs to a small scenic lookout with views of the dam.
There are many picnic tables and BBQs throughout the picnic area, as well as plenty of grassy spots to have a picnic.
