Karkarook Park, Moorabbin

Wildlife Area · Nature / Park
Karkarook Park is a metropolitan park in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. An artificial wetlands and lake created by extracting sand between 1997 and 2001, it is located on Warrigal Road in Moorabbin. Fishing is possible, with redfin perch and rainbow trout reported.
Prior to sand removal, Karkarook Park and adjacent areas were largely used as a storm-water retarding basin and for market gardens and horse agistment.
In 2011, the Victorian government released plans for Karkarook Park to be joined up with nearby parks in the south-east green wedge to form a "chain of parks." Parks in the south-east to be connected include Braeside Park.

  • A great space for Australian wildlife and wetlands to provide a crucial environment for this ecosystem. What an outstanding job the local government and geologists have done. There is everything for family and friends, a walking and cycling trail. There is tremendous views from the viewing platform and a playground for the kids. I believe this is such a special place and we finally give back to nature as we take so much. Let's hope it here for generations to come.
  • A hidden gem. A lovely picturesque place to spend an afternoon with the family. You can go fishing, bike riding, walk the many tracks around the lake, have a bbq or picnic while the kids play on the play ground. There is ample space for a load of activities and plenty of parking
