Welcome to Watchem

Watchem is a picturesque little town located on the Sunraysia Highway 317 kilometers north West of Melbourne.


Watchem Lake is a small lake located 3km west of Watchem on the Warracknabeal Road. The lake has camping facilities and is used for water sports and although it is small, the island in the centre breaks the waves created by speed boats and makes it a good lake for water skiing.  Space is at a premium on holiday weekends so please book ahead.
