The recreational facilities established by the Melbourne and Metropolitan Board of Works around its reservoirs through its beautification program provide ideal surroundings for picnickers and the film shows the attraction provided, as well as some stages of construction of the Cardinia Reservoir. Narrated by Geoff Raymond.
