Lake Bullen Merri - South Beach

Find your own space on this crystal clear volcanic lake on the southern outskirts of Camperdown.

Lake Purrumbete

Lake Purrumbete is an attractive volcanic lake that fishes well for trout and chinook salmon. With an average depth of 45m and a maximum depth of 60m it offers good angling opportunities from bank and boat.

Lake Tooliorook

Picturesque sand bottomed Lake Tooliorook is located 5km from Lismore. The lake offers good fishing and boating amenity and superb views across to Mount Elephant (near Derrinallum).

Lake Elingamite

The crater rim above the lake offers great views and a strong impression of the volcanic nature of the lake. There is a boat ramp and jetty which can be a little difficult to access in low water levels. Bank fishing is difficult in most conditions but is possible from a jetty near the boat ramp.

Deep Lake Recreation Reserve

Deep Lake is just 4.5km from the beautiful township of Derrinallum in South West Victoria and is located just off the Hamilton Highway. The Lake offers spectacular views of Mount Elephant and has toilets, boat launching facilities and a state of the art floating jetty.

Fishing local Rivers

From the volcanic plains and Otway Ranges to the coast our rivers and streams traverse a landscape of lakes, conical peaks, rainforest and coastal woodland on their journey to the sea. Take some time and throw in a line.
