Have your say on Lake Pertobe

Lake Pertobe is a widely recognised and much loved recreation area on Warrnambool's foreshore.

Its combination of natural environment, open spaces, meeting places and adventure playground make it the centrepiece of Warrnambool's open space network and a unique visitor attraction.

In 2016 a master plan will be developed to guide decisions about the future improvement and management of this iconic Warrnambool park.

“We want the community to be involved in the development of the master plan,” Warrnambool Mayor Cr Kylie Gaston said.

“We’re keen to hear what people love about Lake Pertobe and what they’d like to change if they could.

 “The 20ha precinct is a cherished space that appeals to people of all ages so we’re really encouraging the community to help guide this master plan.”

You can have your say by completing a survey at

Hard copies of the survey will also be available at Council offices and Surfside Caravan Park reception for those who prefer a printed copy.

This Friday, January 15, Council will operate a stall at the Lake Pertobe night market where you can talk to Council planners about your ideas or fill out a survey.
