Head to Lake Elizabeth hidden deep in the Otways near the township of Forrest. Discover its inspiring beauty with heavily timbered flanks and calm waters punctuated by the trunks of dead trees, drowned when the valley was flooded more than 50 years ago to form this "perched lake" .
The elusive platypus can be found in the waters of the lake - wake up early or head to Lake Elizabeth at dusk to catch a glimpse of these shy Australian natives.
There are 15 sheltered campsites on the river, close to the lake. The access track is unsuitable for cars towing caravans. This is a walk-in camping area, approximately 80 to 100 metres from the parking area.
Be self-sufficient with drinking water as there is none provided.
Advance bookings and payment are required year round.
