Lakes Entrance

A much loved Victorian holiday spot, Lakes Entrance occupies a spectacular position in the memories of holiday-makers and on the edge of Ninety Mile Beach where the Gippsland Lakes meet the Southern Ocean.

Summer is spent on the water in Lakes Entrance. 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.

The Lakes Entrance township has an easy seaside charm that invites visitors to unwind and relax. It doesn't get much more laid-back than a boat cruise on the Gippsland Lakes, the largest inland network of waterways in Australia. You can get more active and hire a paddleboat or catamaran.

Head to Jemmy's Point Lookout for sweeping views of the town, lakes and the entrance. Cycle the Gippsland Lakes Discovery Trail from Bairnsdale. Make Lakes Entrance your base as you explore the historic Nyerimilang Homestead and Park and the beautiful Lake Tyers Township and the Lake Tyers Forest Park.

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.

Play a round of golf at either one of the golf courses or tee off for fun at one of the mini golf parks.

Lakes Entrance is approximately four hours from Melbourne along the Princes Highway. It is serviced daily by rail to Bairnsdale and then coach to Lakes Entrance from Melbourne.

Lakes Entrance: Where To Go / Sightseeing

Nyerimilang Heritage Park


Nyerimilang Homestead is set among semi-formal gardens on a cliff top above the beautiful Gippsland Lakes. Perfect picnic spots are surrounded by garden and scenic walks meander along bush and farm tracks, past Kurrajong trees, wetland areas and through the East Gippsland Indigenous Plant Garden.

Walking tracks:
- Whistling Kite Track (0.75 km - 10 mins one way): after a grassland walk, the track passes through various forest types. The Whistling Kite, a large brown hawk, nests in the tall Blue Gums that surround this short walk.
- Homestead Track (1.1 km - 25 mins one way): the original entrance to Nyerimilang Homestead was via this track from Maringa Creek crossing. Leaving the homestead, the track gently descends through moist gully vegetation to swamp, then salt marsh.
- Cliff Top Walk (1.7 km - 30 mins one way): the meandering, mostly level track affords the visitor panoramic views of the nearby lake system and Bass Strait beyond.
- Kurrajong Track (0.75 km - 10 mins one way): this track is a link between Cliff Top and Homestead tracks. The Kurrajong, an evergreen native tree, is most obvious on the northern end of this track.
- Salt Marsh Track (1.2 km - 25 mins one way): the track is from the Kalimna West road to Reeve Channel. The salt marsh environment surrounding the tidal Maringa Creek gives way to the sandy shoreline of the lake system.
