Now it’s time to get the blood pumping. Lake Boga, just 15 minutes’ drive south of Swan Hill, is a well-loved holiday camping spot for fans of aquatic fun and the outdoors. The lake itself is 3km across, and is popular with anyone who enjoys swimming, fishing, waterskiing and boats of any kind, including yachting.
The south-western quarter of the circular lake is where you’ll find the Lake Boga township. It’s also home to a caravan park, boat ramps, shady picnic areas, historical monuments, the beautiful Story Wall reconciliation artwork and – perhaps most striking of all – the Flying Boat Museum, featuring a beautifully restored Catalina flying boat from WWII. Lake Boga was an important repair and service depot for flying boats, and the museum celebrates this essential function.
Venture out on a bike and take on the headwinds around Lake Boga – the concrete and gravel track is flat and highlights include the restored turtle lagoon, pelicans, ducks and other waterbirds.
