Melton Reservoir, located to the west of Melbourne near the township of Melton, is a popular area for passive recreation. The reservoir provides water for farmers throughout the Werribee Irrigation District. This means that levels can change throughout the year.
NOTE: Because of low water levels, the entire waterway is now a 5 Knot zone (speed restrictions in place).
Please note: The Melton Recreational Reserve area will be closed to the public until further notice while we undertake some repairs.
The reservoir has a large number of snags and for safety reasons, no boating is allowed other than under the control of the Melbourne Runabout and Speedboat Club.
