Lake Cobbler is a small lake created in the 1960s by damming a swamp area in the headwaters of the Dandongadale River.

After leaving the lake, the river plunges over the Cobbler Plateau creating Dandongadale Falls.

This is Victoria’s longest waterfall with a 255 metre drop and a popular site for Peregrine Falcon to nest.

There is very rough 2WD access from Bennies through to Lake Cobbler in dry weather only.

A scenic drive passing through the picturesque farming valley of the Rose River, riverine forest and foothill bushland before ascending to the subalpine woodlands of Lake Cobbler.

You will pass by the impressive pink sandstone and conglomerate slopes of Mt Typo.

The last section of road provides dramatic glimpses of the Dandongadale Falls.

Lake Cobbler provides quiet, beautiful areas for short term camping.

Stunning snow gums provide the perfect backdrop for a picnic or fishing as well as a good base camp for walking to nearby Mount Cobbler. There are several walking tracks around the lake to explore.
