Loch

Tucked in between Gippsland's vast lakes, beaches and national parks, Victoria's Loch Sport boasts one of the most spectacular spots in Victoria.

Situated east of Sale on a narrow spit of land between the sand dunes of Ninety Mile Beach and Lake Victoria, Loch Sport is home to some of the most beautiful bird life in Australia. The Lakes National Park is an ornithologist's delight, covering more than 2300 hectares of coastal flora and fauna.

The national park features eucalypt and giant banksia woodland, with a spectacular show of wildflowers from August to November and one of the nation's best displays of native orchids. Enjoy a picnic and make use of the barbecue facilities in the park at Sperm Whale Head, and see the surrounding wildlife. Campsites are also available if the idea of pitching a tent and sleeping under the stars becomes too enticing.

Cast a line in and hook bream, mullet, skip jack and flounder. River fishing yields some of the best bream in the area, or try ocean beach fishing for abundant open water fish. You can launch a boat at one of the many ramps along the foreshore. The shallow sandy beach of Lake Victoria at Loch Sport is favourite spot for swimming.

Loch Sport is three hours from Melbourne along the M1 and the Princess Highway.

Ninety Mile Beach Marine National Park


Located 30km south of Sale and adjacent to Gippsland Lakes Coastal Park, Ninety Mile Beach Marine National Park covers 5km of coastline. This untamed stretch of coastline runs alongside the slender strip of sand dunes that protect the Gippsland Lakes.

Beneath the water, vast plains of sand stretch in every direction. However, the sand is not a monotonous as it may appear; wave action and currents sort sand particles into different groups and layers whilst surface features, such as mounds and ripples, are a result of animal and wave action. The coast does not have any rocky headlands or platforms, and offshore there are only a few ribbons of reef which are periodically covered by sand. These formed as shorelines or sand dunes during ice-ages when the sea level was lower than today.

The huge subtidal sandy expanses characteristic of the area, are teeming with marine life. In fact, they are known to have one of the highest species diversity levels of any place on the planet, with 860 species discovered within 10 square meters. These sand dwelling critters can include tube building worms, small molluscs and many tiny crustaceans.
