Rotamah Island is a bushland delight accessible by boat via Paynesville (six kilometres) or Loch Sport (18 kilometres).

Clearly defined tracks offer exceptional views and bird watching opportunities. The tracks are generally sandy and gently undulating and are suitable for family outings. A small picnic area is set aside adjacent to the observatory only a short stroll from the jetty on Rotamah Island. A barbecue, toilets and picnic tables are available.

The camping area is restricted to educational groups who book in advance. Fireplaces and toilets are provided. Book online here.
