Lake Bolac Arial View

About Lake Bolac

 This is a compact view of what Lake Bolac has to offer to our visitors and holiday makers.  Bowls Club, nine hole golf-course with  real greens, cricket net, netball and tennis-courts and a 25 metre swimming pool, all of which are either next door to or within a stone’s throw of the Park. Then of course there is the lake, Lake Bolac, which provides safe swimming, boating, yachting, jet skiing, water skiing, canoeing, wind surfing and, of course, fishing. In short, all the holiday activities that you could wish for, for a relaxing but active holiday. The Grampians are just 60 km away; which means that you can spend your holidays here in Lake Bolac and take a day trip to explore the Grampians with its wonderful nature’s gifts for you to explore. Ararat with it’s interesting history is 50km away;  Ararat, like many other towns in Western and Central Victoria  was built on gold.  A day trip to Ararat and it’s museums, such as Langi Morgala which displays artifacts from days gone by is a MUST. But of course, there is soo much more: Ararat was the home of “J-Ward” a dark and forbidding place for the “criminally insane”. Sad times for all who were incarcerated in this place. Thankfully, we are treating our mentally ill much better now, or are we?  Then of course, there is Aradale, a lunatic asylum which was operative until 1993 - not that long ago. There are conducted tours of Aradale. If we have run out of pamphlets and information on all of our local attractions, the local Information Centre is a ‘mine of information’. Gum San is the Chinese Heritage Centre. A group of weary Chinese miners on the way to the gold-fields of Victoria found a rich shallow alluvial gold-field, where Ararat is now situated. The Gum San Museum has wonderful original displays of what the life in a “Gold Town” was like, just a short 150 years ago. Hamilton 80 km to the west; Ballarat 100 kms east ;  Warrnambool and the Great Ocean Rd, 100 km away to the south.  We are only a couple of hours or so away from Mt Gambier as well. Lake Bolac is central to the greatest attractions that Victoria has to offer.
The Lake Bolac Pub. A blue-stone building from the 1860’s, it is the local watering hole for Lake Bolac.  It offers great meals and great ice cold beer and other drinks for visitors.

Lake Bolac has a number of businesses to make your stay a great experience!
 Country Kitchen Cafe. The Wok and Grill provides first class meals at country prices. Sit down and enjoy the local scenery, watch the world go by as you sit and enjoy the alfresco dining or enjoy an excellent coffee and home made muffin.  In fact, all the food is made fresh on the premises daily - no frozen stuff here!

 New owners and a fresh look have transformed the Lake Bolac Milk Bar into a thriving business since July last year. Partners Kathy Matthew and David McDonald bought the milk bar when its front was looking tired and worn. Since that time, new signs and a paint job have helped bring a mixture of Lake Bolac residents, tourists and truck drivers through the doors.

The Lake Bolac Supermarket supplies all that is needed by all. They sell groceries and fresh fruit and vegetables, your daily papers and of course are licensed. So, there is no need to go hungry or thirsty. Of course they also sell “swap gas”, petrol and diesel fuel. An absolute MUST to visit.
