LAKES ENTRANCE

One of Victoria’s premier holiday destinations, Lakes Entrance is loved for its swimming beaches, waterfront cafes and fleet of colourful fishing boats, many of which sell the day’s catch from the jetties. Located 319 kilometres from Melbourne on the edge of Ninety Mile Beach where the Gippsland Lakes meet the ocean, Lakes Entrance offers myriad water-based activities. Close by, Lake Tyers Beach offers real tranquillity and a perfect holiday option. Join a guided boat tour of the Gippsland Lakes, admire the coastal scenery from Kalimna Lookout, and stroll across the footbridge from the foreshore promenade to see the vast expanse of the Ninety Mile Beach or pick up paper-wrapped fresh fish and chips from a local seafood shop. Alternatively, cast a line off the beach or hire a paddleboat, cruiser or a catamaran and catch your own.
