Lake Hamilton rat among birds

Lake Hamilton, in the Western District of Victoria is a bird paradise with musk ducks spreading their fan tails and puffing their cheeks while cormorants use the buoys as lookout beacons.

A sleek water rat glides swiftly between wary ducks and lapwings gaze steadily west in the dreamy morning.

The 4.2km circumnavigation of the lake, which is close to the attractive town of Hamilton takes an hour – a very pleasant walk. It can also be done by cycle.
