- Mount Arapiles is a Mecca for rock-climbing about three hours away from Melbourne. Climbers flock here from around the world to enjoy more than 2,000 routes on this spectacular chunk of rock rising 356 meters up from the plains. It is also a great place for hiking, cycling, wildlife watching, and flower hunting—with 14% of the State's flora species here alone. Natimuk, the service center for Mount Arapiles and the park, is a great place to enjoy antique and craft shops, museums, restored century-old buildings, and thousands of years of aboriginal history that is unique and key to the area. You can also enjoy water sports galore at Natimuk Lake, Green Lake, and Toolondo Reservoir.
