My Lake Dulverton Walk


I often go for walks around Lake Dulverton near my home in Oatlands. There is a nice long walking trail and plenty to see as you stroll along. I always take my two dogs Toby and Teddy who are of course kept on their leads unless we are in the doggy off the lead zone. The walking trail starts at Oatlands and ends in Parrattah. It’s about an eight kilometre track used by walkers, cyclists and horseback riders. At one end of the lake there is a camping ground and another park called Callington Park. Part of the lake is a consevation area for the birds. There are many to be seen and I have often seen bird watchers by the lake. Years ago before there was a problem with the lake drying up they used to have speed boat racing on the lake. The old boat shed is still there and you can see the old ramps. People still fish at the lake and sometimes they take out row boats. If you wander along the path far enough you can see the ruins of the old mill. (Not the mill in the photo). The track itself was once the railway line from Parrattah to Oatlands. Both railway stations still stand. The Oatlands station is now part of the school. I took a few photos last time I walked around the lake and here they are.

I came to Australia with my mother and sister Vanda in 1966 from the UK aboard the Sitmar liner Castel Felice. We settled in South Australia I lived in the western suburbs of Adelaide for most of my life. I became very interested in retro items in my twenties. It was always a dream of mine to have an old house and fill it with retro items. I have done it twice now. My main interest is collecting old things. They do not have to be valuable, only interesting. There is something reassuring about old retro items. I have all sorts of things including doll related items. My other interests are my beautiful pets, art and going for drives to who knows where. I also enjoy board games or doing a scenic jig saw puzzle on a wintry afternoon by the fire. My goal is to travel a bit more as there are some places I would love to see

    1. I was pleased with those. It was hard to get photos of the other birds because they fly off. The ducks look as if they were all watching a show. I wondered if they would enjoy Swan Lake.

    1. I’m so glad you enjoyed it. The lake is a place I like to go because there are some nice quiet spots to sit and think or just enjoy the lake.
