The Gateway To High Country

Bonnie Doon is a small and humble town situated in North East Victoria on the edge of Lake Eildon and considered as the Gateway to The HIGH COUNTRY.

It is most well known these days as a holiday and weekend destination for bushwalkers, trail bike riders, off-road 4WD enthusiasts and fishermen. Many motor cycle and car clubs use Bonnie Doon as a base for their weekend rallies around Lake Eildon and the King Valley.

It is not so much a town with one population base, but a series of villages with diverse identities spreading north and south from the highway. Sure, the town centre is on the highway with a collection of motels, hotel, caravan park, garage and cafes- but venture out on Maintongoon, Hutchinson or Dry Creek roads to discover the real Bonnie Doon!
