Get the most out of your trip by bringing along comfortable walking shoes. Around the lake, you’ll find walking trails and lookout points with stunning views.

There are many other noteworthy attractions nearby, such as the historic National Trust Woolshed featuring a shearing shed and numerous woolshed displays and activities.

Glencoe’s first inhabitants were Edward and Robert Leake who, back in 1844, named the area after a town in Scotland. The shearing shed was built in 1863 using only blackwood timber and limestone.

Lake Leake is another popular site worth visiting; this spectacular volcanic crater is similar to the lakes of Mount Gambier, but it has its unique charm. Lake Leake also has several areas that are perfect for a picnic.

Visitors who are interested in spending a night or two near Lake Edward can choose to stay in one of the caravan parks and motels not too far away. These are situated in gorgeous locations and allow you to be close to nature, without being too heavy on the pocket.
