To help you with this name. No,it is not Aboriginal or South African, it was coined by the original owners from "rude-are we" We are not rude but we do seem to be stuck with the name. Rudawe specialises in group bookings. Our favourite group is the multiple Mums, Dads and Kids. The sleeping arrangements, facilities and equipment best suit this application. However, we have many satisfied customers who have stayed here from groups including sporting clubs, small business team seminars, hens nights, birthday buddies and of course, the extended family reunion. The 5 Bedrooms, 3 Bathroom(unlimited hot water), as well as 2 refridgerators and a deep freeze will cope with your crew. Two 18 person dining tables, one inside and the other outside on the balcony under the canopy, together with the fully equipped kitchen ensures that you will not be cramped even at full capacity. Equipment includes a 10ft.x5ft. Billiards table and a matching timber indoor soccer table. The wide screen TV has all free to air channels, as well as CD and DVD. These items along with the enclosed wood fire and the Bar are in the 85sq. mtr. rumpus room downstairs. The Lodge does have many surrounding houses so the normal EPA noise restrictions will apply. These will be explained to you when you send an email. Bond will vary according to group type.


Outside under the gazebo is the 8 person hot spa that is the favourite of all who stay here. You will see from the selection of photos in and around the Rudawe that our main goal has been to make your stay fun, interesting and very enjoyable. Being a waterfront property the Lodge has its own private pontoon for your personal use. This floating jetty is acessed by a clear level walking track.

Great for safe swimming or boat mooring. The house is set on one acre that is on the edge of the Lake. Because the property is situated right at the end of the Taylor Bay "arm" your aspect is across a grassed flat area, which is ideal for sports and games, to the houses of other Bay residents nestled in the dense bush.

Costs depend on a number of factors. Number of adults(we dont chage for children under 16) length of stay, days of the week, month of the year and number of days before arrival. Then there is the old supply/demand factor, meaning that we are far more negotiable on price if we really need your booking(Bums on seats!)


The Taylor Bay area of Lake Eildon is unique in that access to the Lake is only possible through private land. Large signs on the no-through road entrance to the Bay declare that there are no facilities available to the general public. Taylor Bay is located just 7 mins. from Eildon and 15 mins. from the dam wall. Remember that when lake levels are low all the water is in front of the wall. Eildon is approximately 2 hours drive from Melbourne along the Maroondah Highway.Should you find that the Lodge is booked for the dates you want, ask us about other accommodation in the area.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect location and superb hosts! My family (8 adults and 3 children) stayed here for 2 nights to say a final farewell to my grandparents. The house suited our purpose and was large enough for all of us, plenty for kids to do (they loved the fooseball!!) and a perfect location. The birds and wildlife around the property were incredible kangaroos so close by! But what made this stay perfect was the hosts John and Sally who took us out onto Lake Eildon on their boat at absolutely no cost and really helped to make the whole occasion absolutely what we envisaged. They went above and beyond to make it so special. A perfect send-off at a beloved family holiday location. Thanks so much John and Sally.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great family retreat Our family group of eleven stayed at Rudawe and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The close proximity to the lake and use of floating jetty was great. The house is roomy and comfortable with loads of entertainment available onsite. The owners were extremely helpful and considerate of all requests. We would certainly stay again and would recommend Rudawe to our friends.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good house for family groups with lots of room downstairs for the kids (3-15 yrs). We loved the spa. It is an older building but suited us fine. Walks along where the dam used to be were fun. We'll be back.
