When you paddle across the lake to get to Mackaway Bay campground, you may well feel like you’re a castaway on a desert island. This small and secluded boat-based camping spot is located on the narrow waterway between Two Mile and Boolambayte Lakes just north of Korsmans Landing campground. Sheltered from the southerly winds, this rustic campsite is perfect for an intimate nature escape for friends or couples.
Pull up in your canoe and set up your campsite among the eucalypts and paperbarks. Boil up the billy and take in the scenic lake and bush views. If you’re lucky, you might have the place to yourselves. However, you might have to share with the eastern grey kangaroos and red-necked wallabies.
Spend your days swimming and relaxing. When evening falls, stoke up the fire and cook up a meal over the flames, then fall asleep to the gentle lapping of the waters.
