Werri Berri picnic area

“I can’t think of many more picturesque spots for a romantic picnic than Werri Berri – perfect for when you feel like just getting away from it all.”

Werri Berri picnic area is fantastic for family outings and is just a short drive from Tahmoor and Picton. Pack a rug, something to cook, and a frisbee, then you’ll be all set for a lovely day out.

Unroll your picnic blanket under the shade of a eucalyptus tree, then open a book, sit back and relax in this charming and scenic spot. This uncrowded lakeside location is the perfect place for enjoying a feast thanks to its flat, grassy surface and free gas barbecues.

For those who want more activity, you can take an easy walk along the Thirlmere Lakes walking track, or check out some local history at the nearby Heritage Pump Station.
