    A charming little spot on the shores of Lake Eildon

    SItuated on the southern shores of Lake Eildon at the Goulburn River, the town of Eildon lies to the northeast of Melbourne. It's surrounded by the Lake Eildon National Park and thickly forested mountains, making for stunning scenery and a peaceful holiday locale. The town center offers plenty of natural ways to enjoy the area, including small restaurants, picnic spots, and well-appointed holiday parks, all in the name of a low-key vacation. Book your Eildon vacation rental right on the lake, and enjoy the daily buzz of people-watching and wistful boat shopping.

    Activities for all, on the water and off

    Most of Eildon's activity centers around its man-made lake and the surrounding national park. Spend your days kayaking, fishing, or boating, or rent jet skis or paddleboards and enjoy some water sports. Many of the fishing areas also have adjacent facilities, complete with kitchens and BBQs, so you can enjoy a proper picnic back on your boat or on the shore. Back on dry land, head into the park and go on guided nature walks, scenic drives, or hike up to panoramic lookout points and take in some views of the Australian Alps.

    From national parks to regional treasures

    The town of Eildon boasts mainly natural attractions, with the most notable being Lake Eildon National Park. But if you have a car (which is a necessity here), there are plenty of museums and other highlights in the surrounding towns. Visit the Bimbi Car and Memorabilia Museum in neighboring Jamieson, and pop into the Jamieson & District Historical Society to learn more about the region's past. You'll also find plenty to learn at the Alexandra Timber Tramway and Museum, while the kids will love the activities, rides, and gardens at High Country Maze.

    There's a reason for peak season on the lake

    Eildon thrives in summer, when it seems everyone in the entire region flocks to the lake. Winter tend to be gray, and rainy, so if you want to avoid peak prices and crowds, your better bet is to visit in late spring or early autumn. Then you can still enjoy warm temps, but the crowds tend to thin out. Late autumn is also stunning thanks to the changing leaves, but only if you don't mind a chill in the air. Even so, any excuse to build a fire and cozy up in your Eildon vacation rental, right?

    Expect stunning scenery, on the lake and in the mountains

    Fishing is Eildon's most popular sport, with lots of spots around the lake and the Gouldburn River made for trout anglers. There are plenty of other birds and critters that scuttle around the surrounding Lake Eildon National Park, too. It's well worth a hike into the Australian Alps, which serve as a stunning backdrop to the region. Pick a lookout point to watch the sun rise or set over Eildon, or opt for a trail that takes you through the forests, past fields of wildflowers, and along trails that will lead you right back to your Eildon vacation rental.
