Nobelius Heritage Park & Emerald Lake Park Walk

Updated: Jun 1

This walk starts off at the very pretty Nobelius Heritage Park which is filled with stunning trees, flower gardens, a few picnic tables & plenty of spots to sit and enjoy the solitude. Parking is free here, unlike at Emerald Lake, & there are usually spaces available.


Walk through the trees to the Emerald-Cockatoo Multi-use trail, which is flanked by large tree ferns & gums & leads down to the main carpark at Emerald Lake Park. There are a number of ways you can walk around the two lakes then head back via the Nobelius Track, which follows the Puffing Billy train track to the station & Heritage Packing Shed. If you have time, walk back via the salvia & lavendar gardens just below the station to get back to the carpark.


The tracks are mostly gently sloping, nice and wide, gravel or paved, but is a short steep section to get back up to the Nobelius Track.

Starting Point: In the car park just past the Emerald Museum. Turn off Emerald-Beaconsfield Rd next to the Puffing Billy track & keep going straight ahead on Chrichton Rd. Turn left just after you pass through the old gates. Go past the Emerald Museum on your right & the car park is right at the bottom.


Distance: If you walk around both lakes it's about 4.3km and may take around 1.25 - 1.5 hours


Toilets: There are 3 toilet blocks near the lakes, about 15mins walk from the starting point.


Dogs: Allowed (On Leash Only)
