Lake Bellfield is located in the eastern Grampians near Halls Gap and has an inlet from Fyans Creek. Lake Bellfield supplies towns (including Halls Gap and Pomonal), farms, recreational lakes and environmental wetlands covering 10% of Victoria. It's also the main source of supply for the Wimmera Mallee Pipeline system, supported by Taylors Lake. Lake Bellfield water quality is generally of a high standard due to its catchment being located in a protected national park.
The lake is used for recreational activities such as boating, fishing and picnicking. Please note that boats with an internal combustion engine are not permitted at Lake Bellfield.
Be sure to play it safe around water.
Read our information signage before entering the water.
