Colquhoun: Travel Tips

Lakes Entrance Visitor Information Centre


Lakes Entrance VIC is the place to come for information on the region. The best known destination, the Gippsland Lakes, is the biggest and most beautiful expanse of inland waterways in the southern hemisphere. Walk across the sand dunes to the famous Ninety Mile Beach.

With eight magnificent National Parks on the coast and in the high country of Gippsland, more than any other region of Australia. These include the Alpine National Park - Victoria's biggest, the Snowy River National Park and the UNESCO- listed Croajingalong National Park that embraces 100 kilometres of coastline.

The region has two of Australia's greatest driving routes. The Great Alpine Road, which winds through the Alpine National Park and Victoria's high country. The Sydney to Melbourne Coastal Drive, which in East Gippsland, starts at Croajingalong National Park and ends at the Gippsland Lakes.

With the country's biggest fishing port at Lakes Entrance, we're the fishing capital of Australia.

Book a lakeside apartment or canal villa with a boat moored at your private jetty, never leave the waterways for your entire holiday. Or stay in a country inn up in the clear mountain air of Victoria's Alpine country and simply wander through the wildflowers.
