Bonnie Doon is a small town situated on the edge of Lake Eildon and is the gateway to the High Country.
Heading east the trail runs between Lake Eildon and the Maroondah Highway and passes through the small village of Bonnie Doon. It is most well known these days as a holiday and weekend destination for bushwalkers, trail bike riders, off-road 4WD enthusiasts and fishermen.
The town centre has a collection of motels, hotel, caravan park, service station and cafes, providing the perfect opportunity to stay, refuel or stock up on supplies.
Having travelled through the township, the trail passes over the Bonnie Doon Bridge which is 385 metres long and provides a great vantage spot to stop and watch the activity on the lake.
