New lake guide

Shepparton News - Country News - - OPINION -

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-mwa­­ationguides 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.
