Lake Eildon is Victoria’s largest inland lake, offering over 500 kilometres of shoreline, that include sheltered bays and safe swimming beaches. With a capacity of 2,290,000 megalitres, Lake Eildon holds up to six times the amount of water of Sydney Harbour and is popular spot for those seeking houseboat holidays.

The tranquil lake and waterways is an irresistible magnet, offering a huge range of aquatic activities that include canoeing, kayaking, sail boarding, water skiing and a range of other water sports. For the keen fishermen the lake and rivers are an angler’s paradise - with the Acheron, Big, Howqua, Goulburn, and Rubicon rivers providing habitat for an abundance of both brown and rainbow trout, Murray Cod, and Golden Perch.

If all this is too much activity, you could always book yourself a houseboat and while away the time, reading, watching the sky change from a glorious day into a starlit night sky.

Of course if you want a break from the aquatic activities, there is plenty the natural flora and fauna to be discovered on your bush walks along the many walking trails available in the Lake Eildon National Park.

The park protects some 27,750 ha of rugged hills with open woodlands through to dense forest. This scenic region offers the opportunity to experience an array of wildlife, natural and historic features and as well a wide range of approved park recreational activities, including boating, and camping. There are even areas suitable for mountain bikes, trail bike, and four wheel driving. Check the Parks Victoria website for any ‘Change of Conditions’. If you are camping, you can even book online through Parks Victoria.

Lake Eildon region offers plenty of other things to do that take in the quality food and wines of the region, cafes and restaurants, museums, local arts and crafts.

There are a number of small townships and villages, including the gateway town of Eildon, the historic charm of Alexandra and Thornton. On the north-east side of the waterway is Mansfield the gateway to Victoria’s High Country. Some of the townships around the shores of Lake Eildon include Bonnie Doon, Goughs Bay and Howqua, all offering boating facilities.
