Welcome to the township of Bonnie Doon

Bonnie Doon Victoria

Experience Bonnie Doon’s water-side environment.

Bonnie Doon is a small township situated on the Maroondah Highway just 21 km west of Mansfield, Victoria.

Originally called Doon, the township was on the Brankeet Creek. The name was changed to Bonnie Doon shortly before 1900, and in 1956 the town was moved to higher ground when Lake Eildon was enlarged.

The name “Doon” was given by an early settler, Thomas Nixon, probably after the Doon Loch in Scotland.

Bonnie Doon draws tourist on the lookout for the water activities of Lake Eildon and along with neighboring Mansfield, the township also serves as the doorway to the Victorian High Country.

The Visit Bonniedoon website provides information about the area, plus the main attractions and activities here.
