Information

The Port Phillip Trail provides access to Currango Homestead by crossing the southern end of the plain. Usually open in summer once the water level is less than 25%. In the spring of 2016 the level exceeded 70% and was 12 m over the trail at the Mosquito Creek crossing. In 2018/19 the level remained at 50% with the trail 6 m underwater. Trail open late October 2019.
The foreshore had a picturesque green flush which extended over the plain. This provided abundant feed for feral brumbies, which controversially are damaging the ecosystem. Camping along the shore and fishing in Tantangara Reservoir.
