SO MUCH TO DO

The immense natural heritage that surrounds the town is amazing. From the towering peaks of the Great Divide, to the fern gullys and river valleys, from the tranquil beauty of Lake Eildon, Victoria's largest inland waterway, to the crystal waterfalls of Mitchell's Gorge.  Jamieson is the perfect base to explore the area by 4WD, on foot or on horseback! The trilogy of mountains, lakes and rivers provides sports, entertainment and relaxation.

Go water skiing on Lake Eildon; we have a boat ramp just out of town.  The Goulburn & Big Rivers have great white water for canoeing and rafting, and the Goulburn in summer is ideal for lazy canoeing.  Launch at Knockwood, paddle to the Kevington Hotel for lunch & finish the afternoon in Jamieson! 

There are some excellent deep waterholes on the Jamieson & Goulburn Rivers providing a cool respite from the summer heat.
