Overview

Natimuk

Discover a postcard-perfect nineteenth-century heritage town and find out why rock climbing buffs are flocking to Natimuk to scale up Mount Arapiles.

On the rocks

Experience Mount Arapiles' world-famous rock climbing and abseiling sites. Show off your climbing chops or let experienced rock climbing instructors guide you. Once at the top, savour the sweeping views from high above before making your way down.

Not a climber? Pull on your boots and walk or ride along the scenic Natimuk-Mt Arapiles rail trail, a 10-kilometre off-road recreational trail.

Community spirit

Starting off life as a rural service centre for nearby farming communities, Natimuk is now known for its arts and cultural scene and restored heritage buildings. Time your visit to coincide with the biannual Nati Frinj, an arts festival which supports local artists and performers.

For a taste of the good life, stop by the Natimuk Farmers Marker, held in Main Street on selected Sundays in March, April, June and November. Meet local growers, sample regional specialties and check out the abundance of local produce.

Venturing out

Meander along the walking tracks that follow Natimuk Creek. Head towards Lake Natimuk and pick a spot with views of the lake and Mount Arapiles. Pitch a tent at the caravan park and then cast a line off the fishing jetty.

Follow Natimuk's Heritage Trail to see the town's impressive nineteenth-century architecture and learn the stories of the settlers for a taste of 1850s pastoral life.
