New lake guide
Goulburn-Murray Water has released a new-look recreation guide for Lake Buffalo to provide key information to visitors and locals.
Printed on waterproof paper, the guide has information on water levels, facilities, fishing, camping, boating and events.
The lake lies at the foot of Mt Buffalo National Park near Myrtleford, and supplies irrigation and stock and domestic water to entitlement holders from surrounding towns.
The water storage also supports an array of agricultural activities including dairy, cropping, nuts, berries and wine grapes.
G-MW customer operations general manager Scott Barber said the guide would serve as a one-stop shop for all basic information about the lake.
‘‘It still has the boating guide and map similar to the last one, but contains greater detail and reminders on the hazards for visitors to be aware of,’’ Mr Barber said.
‘‘Remember that when boating on Lake Buffalo a five knot speed limit applies within 60 metres of the water’s edge, other vessels, navigation aids, swimmers and fixed or floating structures.’’
The new guide is available at: www.g-mwater.com.au/recreationguides or pick up a waterproof copy at the G-MW office at 5 Murrell St, Wangaratta; Wangaratta Visitor Information Centre; or Myrtleford Visitor Information Centre.
