With Rabbits, Echidnas, Kangaroos, Wombats, Kookaburras and Parrots all regular sightings this is a great place to chill out and get away from it all. Dale Kerrigan new Eildon when he spoke about serenity. It is just so quiet at Goughs Bay Lodge. Our neighbours like it that way too, so if you're looking for a place for a wild party, then this won't suit.
Goughs bay is 20 minutes from Mansfield and there is a general store, in walking distance, that services the local area. During the holiday season the local store operates extended hours.
Sit on the deck and read a book, go for a walk, bike ride, or paddle, water ski, fish or just sit and watch TV, its just up to you.

Lake EIldon is 5 times the size of Sydney harbour when full. at 43 there are still vast skiing areas in Goughs Bay, Howqua and Big River and the main arm well up beyond Taylor Bay.
One of the more frequent bookings we get is a get away with family for that special occasion. That special significant birthday, anniversary or a time to get three generations together under one roof. We have had bookings for all of these, and so far so good.
