08/08/2018

The Parks and Wildlife Service has completed the construction of a new picnic shelter at Penny's Lagoon within the Lavinia State Reserve on King Island.


The new shelter contains a free gas barbecue, two picnic tables and interpretive displays along with a stunning view of the lagoon. The $67,000 project was funded through the government's Tourism Infrastructure in Parks fund and the Tasmanian Community Fund.


King Island ranger in charge Shelley Graham said that Penny's Lagoon is a rare perched lake, found in only three locations around the world.


"The lake's freshwater is held by compacted sand and organic matter. The lagoon is a favourite swimming spot for locals and visitors. The new shelter signficantly improves the visitor experience," Ms Graham said.
