Get out to Goughs Bay

-

LESS than 20 minutes’ drive from Mansfield, sits the peaceful township of Goughs Bay with the winding Delatite River snaking its way past and into the calm waters of the lake.

Picnic Point offers beautiful scenery as the blue water meets the rolling hills behind and is perfect for boating, water skiing, wakeboardi­ng or sailing activities from one of the eight boat ramps.

With shelter, BBQ facilities, toilets and a playground, it’s the perfect place to meet friends and family for morning tea, lunch or afternoon tea.

There is also room to pop the tinnie in and throw out a line as you explore the unspoilt bays you never know, you might catch something to cook up for lunch or dinner.

Redfin and Golden Perch (Yellow Bellow) have been known to tip the scales up to eight kilograms while Murray cod measuring more than one metre have been caught.

However, the Goughs Bay area is more commonly known for its rainbow and brown trout which have been regularly reported at four and a half kilograms and above.

Mountain bikers will be happy to know that their sport is becoming more popular in the area and the single track trails within the

Delatite Arm Revegetati­on area are worth exploring.

With mountain trails and tracks just a stone’s throw away, get down to Goughs Bay today and experience the beauty for yourself.
