Natimuk & Mt Arapiles

Adventure-seekers from across the globe flock to Natimuk to experience some of the best rock climbing and abseiling in Australia at Mt Arapiles.

Not a climber? Pull on your boots and walk or ride along the scenic Natimuk-Mt Arapiles rail trail, a 10-kilometre off-road recreational trail. If you enjoy a slower pace, take a stroll through the nineteenth-century heritage township of Natimuk where you will discover restored heritage buildings, local produce, antiques and crafts.

Local Tips:

  • Natimuk is also known for its arts and cultural scene. Time your visit to coincide with the biannual Nati Frinj, an arts festival which supports local artists and performers.
  • Stop by the Natimuk Farmers Market Plus, held in Main Street on selected Long Weekend Sundays in March, April, June and November. Meet local growers, sample regional specialties and check out an abundance of local produce.
  • Nearly 3 km north of town is Lake Natimuk (currently low water levels) which is an ideal spot for fishing, waterskiing and other water sports when it is full. The lake is noted for its plentiful yabbies, redfin and trout.
  • The Verj is community collaboration of art, active participation and sustainable principles to create a redesign of the town’s central median strip.
