Opened April 5, 1979, Cosgroves reservoir is a water storage dam now managed by central highlands water (CHW). It is a popular fishing spot, although be aware a seperate fishing licence (purchased through CHW) is required to fish here.
At GZ, there is a path heading downhill and into the bush. This is a fantastic starting spot to walk or ride the goldfields track all the way back to Creswick. The ride is mostly downhill and will take you past Koala Park and St Georges Lake where there are also a number of geocaches to be found. We ride this path often with the geokids and it becomes more enjoyable each time.
