We enjoyed a sunny winters drive and picnic by the lake. Quite in the winter but still pretty, fox watching us enjoy our picnic and a few kangaroos.

It was a cold bleak day but was interesting as there were places to have a picnic and a section where you could swim as well as fish and put a boat into the lake. Good for water sports.

Visited today with family and very happy to see people busying the nice weather with lots of activity here. Lots of grassed area with space for kicking a footy, some cricket, picnic rugs and all sorts all by the water. Barbecues nearby for the Aussie favourite past time. A gazebo nearby for the hot sunny day. Boat ramps create great... More

The Western District of Victoria is blest with the most amazing water feature where locals and visitors alike are able to enjoy the deep tranquil waters of Lake Bullen Merri. Popular picnic, fishing and water skiing venue!

As part of our stay at Camperdown we did the visit the local scenery first deal. And what scenery they have. A magic lake, clear and just such beautiful setting. Its a real pity that the clowns who fish the lake have to leave or jettison their junk around the place. Nothing worse than seeing the pigs wreck such a... More

Love the lake. Great for swimming on a hot day. Be careful if you have young kids as the lake drops off sharply!! You used to be able to drive around the entire lake but sadly the access has been cut due to arguments over road maintenance as it runs through private land. Hopefully it will reopen in the future...
