Positioned on the banks of two rivers & Victoria's largest inland waterway, Jamieson is ideal for water sports. There's a boat ramp nearby for water skiing on Lake Eildon. The Goulburn & Big Rivers have great white water for canoeing and rafting. In summer, the Goulburn is ideal for lazy canoeing - launch at Knockwood and paddle to the Kevington Hotel for lunch & finish the afternoon in Jamieson! Kayak rental is available at the Jamieson Caravan Park.
Of course, you can just swim in the clear shaded waters of the Jamieson & Goulburn Rivers.
