Lakes and Craters Caravan Parks

The Lakes and Craters Region owes its existence to a period of volcanic activity that lasted tens-of-thousands of years. The largest lake in Victoria is Lake Corangamite, a salt water lake which has a salinity level that is higher than the seawater. During dry spells, the salinity of Lake Corangamite can reach hyper-salinity levels. It is home to brine shrimp that provides vital food source for local and visiting birds.

Many of Victoria's lakes have dried up and it is not uncommon to see concrete boat ramps leading to a grassy field. But other lakes continue to thrive with good water levels and excellent fish stocks.

Lake Bullen Merri near Camperdown is a popular boating venue, with a dual concrete boat ramp it caters for water skiers and fishers. The lake was formed in a crater that had become clogged with rocks and debris after the volcano had become dormant. Much of the water comes from runoff, however most of it is sourced from the underground water table seeping into the lake.

Lake Purrumbete is a world renowned fishing venue with excellent stocks of Brown and Rainbow Trout as well as Chinook Salmon. There is a boat ramp located at the Caravan Park, offering the convenience of access to the lake and accommodation for keen fishers from around the world.

Lake Colac is the largest freshwater lake in Victoria. The town of Colac is situated on the southern shore of the lake. To the south is the Great Otway Ranges National Park.

Industries in this region include Dairy, Timber and Potato Growing. Tourism is also important, with many caravan parks, B&Bs and guest houses providing a good range of choice for the visitor to this area.

A great place to view a panorama of the Lakes and Craters region is at the Red Rock Lookout, near Lake Corangamite. Here, on a clear day, you can enjoy a near 360ยบ view of the craters and lakes in this section of the volcanic precinct.

Mt Gambier in South Australia is one of the younger of the volcanos in the Lakes and Craters Region. The eruptions that formed Mt Gambier occurred only about 5,000 years ago and eye-witness accounts of this activity have been told and passed down the generations of the aboriginal tribes of the area. Mt Gambier is famous for the Blue Lake in the crater which is about 70m deep. There are many interesting geological features to explore in this area.
