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.
