Short walk

Upper Yarra Reservoir was assessed for accessibility in early 2012.

The main picnic area is McVeigh's Picnic area. Facilities include an information shelter, gas and wood fired barbecues, rotunda, toilets and picnic tables. There is a carpark nearby but there is no desigated disabled parking. There are no designated disabled toilets at McVeigh's either.

The camping area is just down from the park office. Most of the campsites are on gentle slopes however, there are several sites that are reasonably level and relatively close to the carpark, toilets and showers. Facilities include a visitor centre, toilet and shower block, sheltered gas barbecues and a wet weather hall that has basic cooking facilities. There is a unisex disabled toilet, but it does not have shower facitlities.

The short walks to the McVeigh's water wheel and the Dam Wall Lookout are both reasonably accessible.
