• Waterways and Water Activities

Don’t let the lack of beach fool you, there are plenty of opportunities for water play around Bendigo. Throw the line in at Lake Eppalock, or choose a faster pace in a fishing or ski boat. Bendigo’s lakes and reservoirs are top recreation spots, and the inner-city aquatic centre offers more than just swimming, with its diving boards and giant waterslide. Take a dip all year-round at one of the city’s indoor heated pools.

At nearby region, experience the pleasure of river swimming under gorgeous gum trees at Bridgewater on Loddon, or head to the Campaspe River for a paddle and spot of fishing.
