The township of Nagambie in Central Victoria, Australia is fast becoming a must-visit destination for adrenaline enthusiasts of all kinds, whether your preference is for extreme sports on water, land, or in the air.
A little over 90 minutes from Melbourne by car, and located on the foreshore of Lake Nagambie and the banks of the mighty Goulburn River, Nagambie has the distinct advantage of consistent water levels – meaning there’s no getting stuck in the mud and it is always a good time for water sports such as wakeboarding, waterskiing, kayaking or a spot of relaxing paddle boarding.
Nagambie has also embraced the New Zealand craze of fliteboarding, which gives the sensation of flying over water. The board carves like a snowboard in fresh powder, but with the freedom to ride anywhere, anytime, without wind, waves, or snow. It’s fast, quiet and emission free.
Moving away from the water, the region has a number of stunning hiking and cycling trails through the outback bush, wetlands and local vineyards. Skydive Nagambie is Victoria’s largest skydiving centre and has been providing thrills for over 17 years. What’s more, the region’s sunny climate means that flights can run all year round so you wont be going all that way just to get stuck on the ground.
Local group Go Nagambie have recently produced a short video featuring a high-energy look at many of the exciting attractions on and around Lake Nagambie, watch it below. There is serious fun to be had in one of the country’s best-kept secrets. You can find out more about the region at www.gonagambie.com.au.
