These caves were once used as a hideout by bushranger Captain Melville. From the picnic area there’s a short walk to the Southern Lookout, which continues to McLeod's Lookout – there’s no shortage of superb views here.

Bridgewater was established as a crossing point for diggers en route to Inglewood diggings. A punt operated a mile below the present bridge and was used as a crossing by Cobb & Co. The Loddon River at this point was later used by diggers to wash their gold when scant water at Inglewood dried up or became silted by mining activity.
Canterbury Park is also noted for its displays of dahlias in conjunction with the Eaglehawk Dahlia and Arts Festival. Every year the garden beds surrounding the fountain are planted out with numerous dahlias supporting Eaglehawk's iconic event. Walk through and we'll meet you at Lake Neangar
