Set in serene manna gum forest not far from an equally serene crater lake, this is a delightful place to stay. Walking tracks guide you along lava canals, around the rim of a crater and down to Lake Surprise itself. Bookings are obligatory for the main public holidays. To get here, follow Mt Eccles Rd from Macarthur.

This campsite is located in Mount Eccles National Park

Mt Eccles, also known as Budj Bim and situated 10 km west of Macarthur, is a dream destination for budding vulcanologists. Ancient eruptions resulted in lava flows and caves that visitors can explore via a network of invigorating walking tracks. A trio of craters now holds the waters of Lake Surprise, which have bubbled up from underground springs.
