|At Ocean Grange there are some houses, a clearing with picnic tables, a walking track to the ocean beach, and public toilets.|
There is also the most abundant birdlife. Welcome Swallows will perch on the railings of your boat, and across the water on the small islands dotted in this part of the Lakes, swans and pelicans nest and raise their young. In fact, the pelican rookery was only established a few years ago and already there's standing room only on their small island. It's one of very few places where you can see young pelicans.
You will, however, see cygnets everywhere on the Lakes in the spring: tiny grey fluff balls that ride on their parent's back between arched wings, or cluster close by in clutches of usually two to six siblings.
The large Ocean Grange homestead was originally a grazier's home, and this entire area was farmed. 'Rigby', the timber day boat in our fleet, was originally constructed to transport sheep from Ocean Grange to Paynesville.
