The property is walking distance from the local general store which has everything you could need including great coffee, food, alcohol, papers and mags, fuel for your car/boat, take away food etc etc. So drop in and say hello to Sue and Eric and say you are staying at Paula's place and they will look after you.
BOAT RAMP is about a good stones throw from the property so you can watch your being launched and skiers skiing from the property. This boat ramp may or may not be open depending on the water levels. The good thing about Goughs Bay however, is that there are many boat ramps to launch your boat around the Bay area no matter what the water level. When the lake was at its lowest the only place you can launch your boat is on a ramp was at Goughs Bay!!
BOAT CLUB!! This is a MUST VISIT and open Wednesday, Friday and Saturday. Its a great place to sit and enjoy a cold one overlooking possibly the best view of Lake Eildon you will find. Prices for drinks are the cheapest around.!!!! NOTE: You don't have to be a member to visit.

Drop in and ask for Jacqueline, the owner, tell her Paula sent you and you will be well looked after.
