|Lake Elizabeth Walk
Typical of the Otway's this walk is through big trees and ferns of the rainforest. The walk is on good track but is fairly steep in places, but it is worth the effort. The lake is a recent addition to the area as it was formed by nature in the fifties. The lake was created when record rainfall sent thousands of tonnes of rock and earth tumbling into the East Barwon River, damming the river and forming a lake in a remote forested valley.
The brochure on the area said we could bring our camper in and camp there - but at the last turn - a big sign told us the NO Caravans should proceed beyond this point. This did cause us a few problems as we got there just on dark! Be aware.
A very worthwhile short walk. RA Approved!
