LAKE EILDON

Lake Eildon has over 500km of shoreline and at full capacity can store six times as much water as Sydney Harbour! The lake is fed by clear mountain rivers and is surrounded by rolling hills, dense forest and open woodland. This makes it a favourite spot for boating and water skiing, fishing and bushwalking. The surrounding countryside is prized for its eucalypt forests, wildlife and fresh mountain air.
