Wallaby Bay Walk (Lake Eildon National Park)


Wallaby Bay Walk (Lake Eildon National Park)

Follow the lake shore on this scenic, shady, gently undulating Grade 3 walk which starts at the Wallaby Bay carpark. Pause for a swim at Cooks Point (2.5km, 40 minutes one-way) or continue on to School Point (7km, 2 hours one-way) for a swim and a picnic before returning the same way.

On the way, stop at Merlo's Lookout for stunning views of the turquoise lake and forested hinterland. This walk can also be combined with the Keg Spur, Blowhard Spur or Devass Gully Tracks for a more challenging hike.

Visitor Tips: Ensure your car is locked and your valuables are out of sight. Carry sufficient water to stay hydrated. Phone signals are unreliable – walkers on longer hikes should consider carrying a radio or personal locator beacon.
