Views of Lake Corangamite

Lake Corangamite, situated on the volcanic plains of western Victoria, is Australia’s largest permanent salt lake. At one stage its water was five times saltier than the ocean, however after good rains last year it is now considered to be as salty as the ocean.

From atop Red Rock, a sleeping volcano, you over look the lake to the west. From that point there are also good views of the volcanic craters.

Lake Corangamite has never been dry, however, with drought conditions over the past decade or more, the water level has receded. Good rains last winter has ensured the waterline has expanded by about 100 to 200 metres.
