Merlo Lookout Day Visitor Area (Lake Eildon National Park)

A stop at Merlo's Lookout is a must! Look out on to the turquoise waters of Wallaby Bay and check out the protruding tip of a homestead that now sits at the bottom of the bay – visible only when water levels are low.

Visitor Tips: Ensure your car is locked and your valuables are out of sight before walking up to Blowhard Spur.
