Welcome To Eildon, Victoria

Eildon is a small town in Victoria near the holiday hotspot of Lake Eildon. Though the town itself is small, with a population of about 1000, Eildon is well-equipped with cafes, restaurants, and shops to cater to visiting holiday makers. Eildon is located 140 kilometres and two hours away from Melbourne, making it an immensely popular weekend holiday spot for Melburnians.

Lake Eildon: A Holiday Paradise

It's impossible to talk about Eildon without mentioning its main attraction: Lake Eildon. Holding well over 3 million megalitres when full, the lake contains over five times more water than Sydney Harbour! With more than 500 kilometres of shoreline, there's plenty of room for boats of all sizes. You'll see permanent houseboats, canoes, speedboats, and personal watercraft all out on Lake Eildon. The kayaking and canoeing is some of the best in High Country, with a wide range of river difficulties for every experience levels. Experienced rafters and paddlers can seek out the thrill of the high rapids. 

Lake Eildon also hosts a wealth of hiking trails for those who want to get out for a spot of bush walking. Alpine National Park has a 27-kilometre trail that's ideal for serious hikers, the area is also packed with easy and moderate trails good for beginners and families. 

Fishing At Lake Eildon

Lake Eildon is one of the most popular fishing destinations in Australia. Between the lake, rivers, and tributaries, there's fishing to be had for every angler: fly fisherman, bait fisherman, boat or canoe/kayak fishing, and, of course, the recreational holiday maker just looking to spend a day on the water. The lake is stocked with brown and rainbow trout courtesy of the Snobs Creek Hatchery. You can also try your hand at catching carp, redfish, roach, trench, perch, or Murray cod. If you're itching to get out on the water, you can bring your own boat, canoe, or kayak; alternatively, you can rent one from one of the many boat rentals around the lake.

There are also many "Catch Your Own" facilities that offer the thrill of fishing without the disappointment of coming home empty-handed. These facilities are perfect for families with younger children or holiday makers who want to catch their own fresh trout dinner. 

Where To Stay In Eildon

Like most High Country accommodation, Eildon accommodation is spacious and secluded with a strong emphasis on nature. Most Eildon holiday rentals are homes located directly on the water, so there's no need to make a trek down to the lake every morning. Some are even pet-friendly, so there's no need to leave Spot at home while you're on holiday!

No matter if you want an action-packed, sport-filled trip or just a relaxing holiday by the water, Lake Eildon offers the perfect setting for a lakeside holiday.

This retreat area was a peaceful area for everyone and our little Puppy to escape too. The gardens are exquisite and we all enjoyed wandering around them. Thank you Nick, we will definitely return to your beautiful Paradise Retreat Lakehouse.
