Lake Wivenhoe is in the picturesque Esk Shire, known as "Valley of the Lakes", is an hour from the northwest of Brisbane. Along with Lake Sommerset, it is the source of the Brisbane River, and affords great opportunities for camping, sailing, fishing, swimming, picnicking and bush walking. Activities in the area are not limited to the lakes either, sky-diving, hang-gliding and horse riding are available too, and a few places offer farm stays for weekends. There is accommodation nearby, and pubs, restaurants and bakeries to satisfy hungry stomachs.
