Boating Trail Features


Launch from one of the ramps in the scenic town of Eildon, just two hours from Melbourne. Then wind your way around the 13,000 hectares of waterways amongst the forests and mountains. Eildon is a perfect paradise for houseboats, kayaking, swimming, bush walks, water sports, camping and freshwater fishing.


Find yourself a secret fishing spot to hook a Trout or a mighty Murray Cod, or head to the stocked Eildon Pondage Lake for family fishing, with a purpose-built pier and wheelchair access. Stop for lunch overlooking idyllic lake views at Jerusalem Creek and take a beautiful bushwalk. Finish your day in the serenity of Bonnie Doon with a pub meal. Or simply stop at one of Lake Eildon’s many campsites, and sit back by your campfire, breath in the clean air and take in the luminous quilt of stars.
