This community space has been designed to help people reconnect with nature, in a reimagined setting that gives new life to an unused space. Created in partnership between Goulburn Valley Water and the Burnanga Indigenous Fishing Club, Dunyak Moira (meaning fishing lake in Yorta Yorta language) is a new space for people to access water-related recreational activities in Merrigum.
Dunyak Moira has been established to celebrate our wonderful native fisheries and appreciate the rich indigenous culture that has sustained them for many thousands of years. To ensure this remains a high quality fishery for future generations, there is a 'catch and release’ policy, which is a condition of entry.
There's a designated car park area to the left as you drive through the gates. Please keep cars in the gravelled area.
You can fish from pontoons at the Burnanga reservoir across the bridge. Fishing is permitted from three bank sides on the Gangupka reservoir - you can walk down the slope to the banks, or there's a ramp in the south-east corner of the lagoon (see the map on site).
There are several picnic tables and a grassed area. Please take any rubbish with you.
GV Water will be installing a drinking fountain soon!
The nearest public toilets are located at Judd Park, a 250 metre (3 minute walk) along Morrisey Street towards the town centre.
