AN INSIDERS GUIDE - LOIS DUPLIEXby GREAT OCEAN ROAD
Lois runs the Lake Edge Cafe at Lake Purumbete in the heart of the Volcanic Lakes and Plains and just a 10 minute drive from Camperdown. It features delicious home made food with much of it home grown and always served up with a good dose of country hospitality. The Lake Edge Cafe is a local favourite for long lunches. Hand crocheted rugs keep you warm on the deck in winter making it a favourite of ours too!
Q1 - Best tip for foodies
My current favourite is the Vietnamese Braised Beef at the Lake Edge Cafe. No bias.
Q2 - Best view for sunrise or sunset
The view over Lake Purumbete is stunning at sunrise or sunset (just go to the other side)
Q3 - Best place to soothe your mind
Hoses Rocks is a spot on the shore of Lake Purumbete around from the cafe where you can dip your toes in the water on a warm day
Q4 - Best tip for top fun
Rock the Clock in Camperdown in October.

Q7 - A secret you’re willing to share
Every child or child at heart loves to see Pelicans. There are plenty on Lake Purumbete especially around the boat ramp and boardwalks.
