Thinking of Lake Eildon I only thought of water sport/activities (if there is enough water in the dam!). Today we walked the Blowhard Circuit, starting at Wallaby Bay which was a great 22 km trail. The paths were well maintained, at times surprisingly steep. We...More

It's a surprise so close to Melbourne. We went there for a family holiday with two other families with small children and have to admit it was very relaxing and the view were breath taking. We would highly recommend it.

You can camp out side the national park in an area called the pines, it's on the north eastern side. But get in early as camp sites will fill up quick!
