So where is Ferguson Lake Nature Reserve? It is located just off North Kelly Road on Ferguson Lake Road. The nature reserve is situated on 18.4 ha and includes a unique 3km interpretive trail system that surrounds the small lake. An old homestead site is still visible along with a dock, viewpoint, picnic site and canoe launch. Part of the trail system is suspended over the lake on a plank style walkway and provides a unique look at the lake plant life. Ferguson Lake Nature Reserve provides an exceptional outing for the entire family - check it out!
