The lake is a part of the Edgar’s Creek catchment, which is a stream of Melbourne’s Yarra River. The lake has very high community and environmental values. Edwardes Lake is an urban water body of some 85 million litres created by a concrete weir on Edgar’s Creek, as part of the Merri catchment. The lake has an upstream catchment of more than 100 square kilometres and is an important part of regional stormwater management. It is the second largest urban lake in the greater Melbourne metropolitan region.
