BOTH ON & OFF WATER!

Lake Eildon is located on the Goulburn River a little over 2 hours from Melbourne’s CBD, it is surrounded by the magnificent scenery of Lake Eildon National Park.
The lake stretches along an expansive shoreline of over 500kms and it has long been one of Victoria’s most popular holiday spots.
Our picturesque Club is nestled on Anderson Harbour in Lake Eildon, and close to the Eildon township.
We boast a busy calendar of events and activities both on and off the water throughout the year, and a premier clubhouse, restaurant and bar that overlooks Anderson Harbour.
An EBC Membership is the "Optimum Holiday Experience" for boating & water sports!
At EBC we are as passionate about our members as they are about their boating and water sports!
With an expansive shoreline of over 500kms, Lake Eildon has long been one of Victoria’s most popular holiday spots to enjoy the “boating lifestyle”.
