Taylors Lake is an off-stream reservoir and a reliable water source for the region. Sitting 20 km south-east of Horsham, it's supplied from upstream storage within the Wimmera-Glenelg headworks. The nearby Potters Creek also serves as a small natural catchment.
The lake has an important role in supplying environmental water to the Wimmera River. It's also very popular with Horsham locals for recreation, especially fishing and water skiing. When other lakes are dry, Taylors Lake will often still have water to enjoy.
- Camping at this lake is not permitted until further notice
- Duck shooting permitted during duck season only
The boating authority for Taylors Lake is GWMWater.
We've developed plans to improve the recreational use of Taylors Lake.
