Coller Bay Walking and Cycling Track (Lake Eildon National Park)

Take a break from the water and enjoy a great introduction to the versatile landscapes of Lake Eildon with a walk or cycle along this undulating lake shore trail.

The 3.5km (one-way) Grade 2 track links the three main campgrounds in the Fraser Block. Stop for a picnic with beautiful views of the lake or continue on to the Candlebark and Perfect Cure Creek Nature.

Visitor Tips: Ensure your car is locked and your valuables are out of sight. Carry sufficient water to stay hydrated. Mobile phone signals are unreliable in the park, however a public telephone is located at the Herb Fitzroy Day Visitor Area.

Blue-Green Algae Warning for Lake Eildon

Goulburn-Murray Water (GMW) has detected high blue-green algae levels within Lake Eildon.
Blue-green algae present a risk to the health of humans and animals. The algae detected may cause gastroenteritis if ingested. Characteristic signs of algae contact are skin rashes or itchiness; sore eyes, ears and nose; or if swallowed, nausea or vomiting.
The situation is being closely monitored by GMW and the following precautions are recommended:
  • People and pets should avoid contact with the water.
  • Untreated water should never be used for human consumption (e.g. drinking, cooking, showering, bathing, washing).
  • People who come into contact with the water should wash affected skin immediately in clean cold water.
  • Boiling the affected water will not make it safe to use. Blue-green algae release toxins into the water when heated.
You can determine if the warning is still current by visiting the GMW website or by ringing 1800 013 357.
Please remember that water in Lake Eildon is not suitable for human consumption without first being properly treated.
