Travel up to the High Country and discover the vast inland waters of Lake Eildon. With a shoreline of 515 kilometres and a capacity of 2,290,000 megalitres, the lake holds up to six times the amount of water of Sydney Harbour.
On the water
Visit during the summer months to find a water sports heaven popular with locals from surrounding towns, including Eildon, Alexandra, Mansfield, Bonnie Doon and Howqua. Bring your own gear or hire from local providers and enjoy boating, sailing, water-skiing, kayaking and canoeing. If you're keen for a swim, be sure to check with locals about the best and safest places to have a dip. And with more than 700 houseboats moored on the lake and countless tranquil inlets to explore, Lake Eildon is the perfect setting for that houseboat holiday with the family.
Water levels vary significantly throughout the year, so you may wish to contact the local visitor information centre to obtain the current water levels.
Discover a variety of scenery and landscapes throughout the national park, from open bush on the northern side to dense vegetation on the southern and eastern sides. The northern Delatite Arm Reserve and the southern Fraser Camping Grounds have large and very popular campsites with full facilities.
Pitch your tent in the Fraser Camping Grounds for the chance to see mobs of kangaroos and hordes of tame parrots. Choose from a number of good walking tracks of various lengths leading from or near the camp sites along which you may also see some of the area's abundant wildlife.
