Other walking tracks at Silvan Reservoir Park include the lengthier Olinda Creek Walking Trail and Mount Evelyn Aqueduct Trail which measure 5.6 kms and 7.2 kms respectively. For these trails, moderate fitness is required as the trails are a little more challenging than the nature walks. During the walks, visitors can spot a variety of wildlife species, including sugar gliders, wombats, ringtail possums and echidnas.
Bird watchers will enjoy spending time at the park where they can spot many different species of waterbirds including the spoonbills and long-legged herons. Robins and cockatoos are also common within the park. The magnificent wedge-tailed eagle is more elusive, but you may be lucky enough to catch a glimpse as they soar high above the trees.
Silvan Reservoir Park has numerous picnic sites where visitors can BBQ with family and friends as they soak in spectacular views of the park. It is important for visitors to note that dogs must always be kept on a leash and are not permitted on the walking trails.
For an amazing day in Silvan Reservoir Park, visitors can find easy access from Stonyford Road in Silvan.
