Overview

Camperdown

Take the picturesque inland route to the 12 Apostles and discover Camperdown located on the world's third largest volcanic plain. The region's lush pastures are home to dairy farms producing mouth-watering cheeses, which can be sampled and purchased at nearby Timboon. For an indulgent afternoon, settle in for a refreshing ale and gourmet lunch at Camperdown's Snout in the Trough.

Lakes and craters

Climb to the top of Mt Leura and Mt Sugarloaf and take in 360-degree views of the coastal ranges and rolling western plains. Volcanic activity has shaped much of the surrounding landscape, leaving a legacy of cones, lakes and craters to explore.

Keen fisher-folk will enjoy the chance to snag a few trout or chinook salmon at the many nearby lakes and streams.

Winding trails

For a dose of fresh country air, climb aboard your bike and head along the Camperdown Timboon Rail Trail to take in rolling green pastures, lakes, historic trestle bridges and pristine bushland.

Gourmands ahoy

With a growing reputation for fine local produce and gourmet treats, the region now attracts foodies from across the state. Bring your basket and traverse the 12 Apostles Gourmet Trail to sample everything from whiskey, cheese and wine to yoghurt, strawberries and craft beer.
