Top 10 things to do at Lake Mountain

A guide for your big day

There’s plenty to do on our little mountain, so use this guide to help you plan your big day.

You’ll find loads of activities for all ages in and around our Village and if you’re looking for something a bit more challenging, we have over 25kms of easy bushwalking trails plus a variety of Mountain Bike trails including the magnificent new Cascades Trail – a fun ride full of intermediate ups and downs all the way into Marysville.

1. Go mountain biking

Ride the trails carved into the bush off the side of the Lake Mountain Road. From beginner’s to advanced, there is hours of riding on offer.  We even have mountain bikes for rent, starting from only $25 for half a day.

2. Stroll up to the Summit

Wander through the snow gum woodland up to the summit of our little mountain for beautiful views down the valley. This 5km loop is well sign posted, has gentle gradients and on a clear day lets you see all the way back to Melbourne.

3. Go on a rogaining run

Explore our little mountain with a compass and a map using one of our rogaining kits. Visit the checkpoints, solve the clues and gather all the points either as a team or in a contest with friends.

4. Head out for a day walk

Out beyond the village, we’ve got plenty of longer walks for those looking for a bit more adventure. Talk the long walk out to Boundary Hut for the views or head to Mt Arnold to see if you can spot a lyrebird.

5. Take a wildflower walk

Stroll through fields of wildflowers from November to January when Lake Mountain bursts into a sea of native colours. Check out the display in reception to see which flowers are currently in bloom.

6. Ride the 240m dual flying fox

Enjoy the view and experience the thrill of the 240m dual flying fox alongside your friends and family. Make sure you book early, though. The flying fox always books out

7. Slide down the Tube Run

Slide and spin down our 100m Tube Run. Go it alone or double up with the kids with three rides for $10pp.

8. Tag someone at Laser Skirmish

Get kitted out in laser tag gear and play a tactical game of Laser Skirmish with your mates.

9. Listen to a talk with our experienced guides

Our sub-alpine forest environment is bursting with life. Keep your eye out for our talks on native flora and fauna, including the unique regeneration of our snowgums after the bushfires.

10. Have something to eat at our Café

Escape the elements and refuel the body with bite to eat from the range of delicious menu items in our cafe. Sit out on the deck with a cool drink and soak up the environment.
