If you are planning to stay at the Camperdown Cascade Motel, we’re sure that you’re interested in the nearby attractions – the good news is that there is something for visitors of all ages and areas of interest.
The region is actually a wealth of history, with plenty of historical buildings and sites to visit. The Court House, which was built in 1886/1887 and has been classified by the National Trust. The museum houses a collection of local and Aboriginal artifacts. The Clock Tower, which was built in 1896/1897 in memory of pioneer Thomas Manifold. And the Camperdown Post Office, which was built in 1863 to service the town and the surrounding area.
Being located amongst volcanic craters, there are plenty of waterways to while away your time (particularly during the summer when the weather is warm). These include Lake Bullen Merri, Lake Gnotuk, Lake Colongulac, Lake Booker and Lake Koreetnung. There are plenty of recreational activities on offer, including water skiing, windsurfing, sailing and snorkeling. Lake Purrumbete offers some of the best trout and Chinook salmon fishing in Australia.
As we’ve already noted, volcanic activity has shaped much of the landscape surrounding Camperdown. Why not climb to the top of Mt Leura or Mt Sugarloaf for 360 degree views of the coastal ranges and rolling western plains? Or try your hand at golf, tennis, cricket, hockey, lawn bowls or equestrian events at the vas recreation park that has been established? We also recommend the Camperdown Timboon Rail Trail, which is an impressive 34km long.
The town and surrounding region are also host to a number of events throughout the year – be sure to book your accommodation early to avoid missing out! In particular, we recommend the Camperdown Rotary Market (on the first Sunday of the month), the Camperdown Show (held in October), the Robert Burns Scottish Festival, Rock the Clock vintage festival (held across 4 days in October) and the Corangamite Foodies Feast.
Sport and recreation plays an integral part of the community. In town, there are various basketball and squash centres, football ovals and swimming pools to enjoy. Plus there is the wealth of sporting fields at the recreation park between Bullen Merri and Gnotuk lakes. Why not drop into the Kurweeton air strip (in Derrinallum, just north of Camperdown)? Here, trial and instructional flights are carried out on most weekends free of charge.
