Dry stone walls, weathered windmills, a bluestone bridge and a historic hotel. Use the tiny village of Darlington as a base for exploring our Volcanic Lakes and Plains and the southern edge of the Grampians.
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).
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.
Visible from 60 kilometres in every direction, Mount Elephant dominates the landscape and now you have the chance to put yourself on the top of it.
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.
Tales of shipwreck and marine misadventure are woven into the very fabric of the region and a vibrant pastoral history, rich volcanic soils and philanthropic benefactors have left a legacy of cultured street scapes and magnificent historic buildings just north of the coast.
Lake Bookaar offers good bird watching opportunity over spring and summer presided over by the bulk of nearby Mount Elephant.
