You are all invited to one of the BIGGEST MUNZEE Events on the 2019 Australian Munzee Calendar
Beautiful Karkarook Park is located on the corner of Warragul rd and Dingley Bypass in Moorabbin (Melway reference 78 D7) "We know what you'r all thinking, What's a Melways?" others might be thinking "Who uses melways these days!"
The hosts would like to pay our respects to the traditional owners of the land. The area around Karkarook would have been a rich source of food for Aboriginal people. “Karkarook” is an Aboriginal term meaning “a sandy place”.
Access to Karkarook Park is 24/7
Free parking available via the entrance along Fairchild St, Moorabbin.
Karkarook Park is a recreational and environmental 40 hectare oasis available for the community to enjoy. Revegetated with indigenous plants, it has wetlands which improve water quality by filtering storm water as it flows on to Port Phillip Bay. The 15 hectare lake was previously a sandmine, but now provides a home for many water birds as well as opportunities to sail a man-powered boat or fish. Visitors can enjoy walking tracks, picnic facilities and a lake lookout.
Things to do…
**Get active and walk, jog or cycle around the 6km of trails in the park.**
**You can use one the free electric barbecues, or bring a picnic to enjoy by the lake.**
**Reduce your stress levels, and get in touch with nature; watch the sun set across the lake from the pier, or see how many different birds you can spot.**
**Canoes, kayaks and single-hulled sailboats (under five metres) are permitted on the lake,**
**Grab your fishing line and try to catch a Rainbow Trout or Red Fin.**
