The Preliminary Draft Master Plan achieves the goal of a 20-year strategic plan for the future of Lake Wendouree. It answers the questions: What do you love about Lake Wendouree? And what would you like the Lake to look like in 20 years?
Future planning in the Lake Wendouree Preliminary Draft Master Plan respects important and diverse values including landscape, environment and biodiversity, lake and water quality, recreation (health and wellbeing), events/activation, buildings and boatsheds, facilities and amenities, traffic management and car parking, access, and culture and history.

New projects suggested in last year’s community consultation period were also considered and reviewed including a floating stage and/or restaurant, lake fountain, light show, events at Fairyland and night markets.
All consultation and conversations confirmed that Lake Wendouree is significant at a local, state and national level. One of few lakes in Australia located in the centre of a major city, Lake Wendouree is a very valuable national environment existing in an important area of Ballarat’s heritage.
