Lakes Entrance

One of Victoria’s premier holiday destinations, Lakes Entrance is beloved 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 tranquility and a perfect holiday option. Join a guided boat tour of the Gippsland Lakes, admire the coastal scenery from Kalimna Lookout, stroll across the footbridge from the foreshore promenade to see the vast expanse of 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.
