Barwon Heads Attraction

Lake Connewarre / Lake Connewarre State Game Reserve
• Lake Connewarre is a shallow estuarine lagoon in the lower reaches of the Barwon River, surrounded by swamps, marshes, lakes and river areas that make up one of the largest estuaries in Western Victoria, known as the Lake Connewarre State Game Reserve (PDF). In 1983 the Reserve was declared by the Victorian Government as a 'wetland of internationally significance' under the Ramsar convention.

Dominated by two very different lakes, Lake Connewarre and Reedy Lake, that have their own unique water quality supporting different plant communities, the lakes and reserve provides significant habitat for a number of endangered migratory bird species.
