Lying south of the Great Lake dam area, the lagoon is a bit over 4 km in length and 1.5 kilometres at its' widest point. Open to all methods and suitable for small inflatables and kayaks. Access is via A5 which runs along the northern shore or by Barren Plains Road road off the A5 before you reach the lagoon from the east. This road takes you to the dam wall.
