Boasting Australia's largest inland network of waterways, Lakes Entrance has been a popular Gippsland holiday spot for more than 100 years.
Lakes Entrance is situated on the edge of Ninety Mile Beach where the Gippsland Lakes meets the Southern Ocean. The town has a population of approximately 5,250.
Cross the footbridge to the popular Ninety Mile Beach surf beach, patrolled by lifesavers during the summer months, or take a hike to 'the entrance' of the Gippsland Lakes. Visitors can enjoy a boat cruise on the Lakes or hire a paddleboat or catamaran in the summer months. Nearby scenic Lake Tyers is bordered by the ocean, a state forest and a river that meanders inland to Nowa Nowa.
Lakes Entrance is renowned as a 'seafood capital' due to the large number of fishing trawlers operating in the area. Catch your own fish or savour the catches from fresh seafood shops.
