The small townships of Glenmaggie and Coongulla are situated 12km north of Heyfield.
The Glenmaggie Weir is a man-made Weir in the foothills of the Great Dividing Range in Gippsland and was built primarily for irrigation, but today remains very popular for water sports such as skiing and speed boat racing.
The Weir wall area provides a pleasant picnic ground and information centre. The local caravan park is also located on the lake shoreline. The area is also rich in animal, bird and plant life and is a delight for naturalists.
