Happy Valley Reservoir

South entrance on Chandlers Hill Rd, directly opposite Kenihans Rd.  Google maps via the Directions button will take you to this main entrance.

If instead, you enter at the first sign for the reserve, 1.5 km from the Main South Rd., near Berkeley Rd (as I initially did), you will be at the wrong site.  The main entrance is a further 2 km along Chandlers Hiil Rd., and follows a left turn at the Bishops Hill Rd. intersection.

Hours: 7:30 am to 8:00 pm.  Large car park.  Toilets near main entrance.

More information ...

The google maps satellite view is outdated, it doesn’t show the new carparks and toilet block, but the street view does show these.
