Lake Colac Fishing And Camping

What To Do

Lake Colac is the largest natural freshwater lake in Victoria. Lake Colac fishing includes the opportunity to angle a rainbow trout (which have been placed into the lake by the Victorian Fishing Authority to buoy the already popular angling spot).

Lake Colac camping options include camping or caravanning on the Lake foreshore as well as options less than a kilometre away.

History of Lake Colac

Lake Colac, Victoria is in the volcanic Corangamite basin. It has a rich indigenous history (it is the ancestral land of the Coladjin tribe) and since 1870 it has been a popular venue for pleasure boats and water sports. The perimeter of the lake is approximately 33 kilometres, which is why Lake Colac fishing is one of the most popular pastimes.

Find Where To Stay

Most of the Lake Colac accommodation – including Lake Colac camping is located on the southern end of the lake in the township of Colac. Visit our Where to Stay page and select ‘Colac’ from the drop down to see all of the accommodation options.
