With lakes and waterways framed by majestic mountain ranges and stunning vast landscapes, our region is a prime location for fishing enthusiasts. Avid anglers, or beginners looking for a new experience, can throw in a line and expect to catch rainbow trout, Murray cod, golden perch, and more.
Escape to Rocklands Reservoir for a peaceful setting, or head to Taylors Lake with the family to unwind and reset. For more locations, see our list of the best locations in the Grampians to cast a line.
Before heading out remember to purchase a Recreational Fishing Licence (RFL).
Swap the sand and pesky seagulls for a swim in our sparkling lakes and waterways in the Grampians. There’s no better way to cool off after a day of hiking, cycling or exploring than with a dip in a freshwater lake or secluded swimming hole.
If you prefer to be on the water, rather than in it – a Grampians canoeing adventure is a must-do. Absolute Outdoors organise half-day canoeing experiences suitable for all ages. Enjoy the scenic tour of the lakes, shorelines and native wildlife as you paddle across crystal waters. Experienced instructors will also share insider knowledge on the Grampians area and history.
Immerse yourself in nature and awaken your sense of adventure with a Stand Up Paddling (SUP) experience.
Absolute Outdoors offer three-hour SUP adventures that will allow you to explore the waters and shoreline, all under the safe guidance from their experienced instructors.
The Grampians waterfalls are simply spectacular and offer ample spots for picnics, barbecues and swimming. Home to one of Victoria’s largest waterfalls, MacKenzie Falls, and the breathtaking Fish Falls, nature lovers looking for tranquillity and peace won’t be disappointed.
