Information

Bonnie Doon is a small village located on the Maroondah Highway, in the Shire of Mansfield. Bonnie Doon is 168 kilometres north-east from Melbourne.

The township was established subsequent to gold discoveries in the area. It was originally named Doon after the town of that name in Ireland. The town was renamed Bonnie Doon in 1891 coinciding with the arrival of the railway.

Much of the original town of Bonnie Doon was flooded by the construction of Lake Eildon in the 1950s. The township was relocated; some buildings were picked up and moved, whilst others were able to remain in their original site, such as the churches.

Lake Eildon makes Bonnie Doon a minor tourist town for water activities, and the surrounds of Bonnie Doon are somewhat popular for weekend holidaymakers.

Bonnie Doon is on the Great Victorian Rail Trail.
