Explore the Gourmet Trail
Just a short drive from Camperdown is the 12 Apostles Gourmet Trail. For a small region, the 12 Apostles Gourmet Trail punches well above its weight, with award winning produce and gourmet treats suitable for the most discerning traveller. The Trail is a 70km loop from Port Campbell and a must do for foodies.
Lakes and Craters
Climb to the top of Mt Leura and Mt Sugarloaf and take in 360-degree views of the coastal ranges and rolling western plains. Volcanic activity has shaped much of the surrounding landscape, leaving a legacy of cones, lakes and craters to explore. After your hike, cool off in the waters of Lake Bullen Merri. Pack the fishing rods for a relaxing afternoon hunting the local catch.
Coast to Crater Rail Trail
The completed Camperdown to Timboon section is a wonderful 40km trail dotted with statuesque trestle bridges and spellbinding scenery. Riders and walkers traverse volcanic features listed in Kanawinka Global Geopark, farmland, wooded grassland and tall wet forest on descent into the wooded Timboon valley.
The trail provides an important connective corridor for native animals. The relationship between native wildlife and the trail is creatively interpreted by a display housed in the Timboon Railway Shed Distillery. This building along with the old ticket office forms the southern terminus of stage 1 of the trail.
