Camp by Lake Eildon and enjoy a whole world of watersports in a spectacular setting. Go swimming, canoeing, waterskiing, sailing, boating and fishing in the shadow of the Victorian Alps. Enjoy bushwalking or cycling along a network of trails. You’ll share the picture-perfect surroundings with kangaroos, wombats and a huge variety of beautiful birds. The park is also an important home for a number of significant species including large forest owls (Powerful and Barking Owls), bats and the endangered Spotted Tree-frog and Brush-tailed Phascogale.
Take a day trip to Lake Eildon or stay overnight at one of the picturesque campgrounds. Choose from the well-equipped Devils Cove, Candlebark and Lakeside Campgrounds or the more basic Mountaineer, O’Toole Flat, Coopers Point, Taylors Creek or Jerusalem Creek Campground.
Take a walk and stop at Merlo Lookout or trek up to Blowhard Summit for unrivalled views over Lake Eildon and out towards Mount Buller or you could stay on a houseboat for a more sedate holiday.
As rivers, lakes and reservoirs are natural environments, you may encounter hazards. Follow Parks Vic water safety advice to make sure your day out at Lake Eildon National Park is a safe and enjoyable one.
