Unplug and get active with the kids and paddle, cycle or trail run in the great outdoors. Discover fresh seafood, microbrewed beers and local wines, all served with a view of the beautiful Gippsland Lakes. Re-connect with your family at Gippsland's Lakes Entrance.
The Gippsland Lakes are a network of lakes, marshes and lagoons covering over 600 square kilometres. The Lakes are separated from the ocean by coastal dunes known as Ninety Mile Beach. Bird and marine life thrive here, with lake dolphins and pelicans frequenting many locations.
You can easily fill your days with a range of activities, either on the water or on dry land. Boating and fishing are what attracts most to the lakes. Surf fishing along Ninety Mile Beach, or lake fishing from a boat, bank or jetty is popular, too.
Visit in spring to see spectacular displays of wildflowers including orchids, wattle, heathland and more. With beautiful spring days and less crowds than during the summer months, spring really is the best time to visit Lakes Entrance and explore with the family.
Take the family paddling with dolphins and seals, or try your luck at koala spotting and whale watching ... or slow down and wander the many picturesque trails along the rivers and lakes.
Unplug your devices and get active with the kids. Challenge the family to a paddleboat race or take a leisurely kayak. Learn to sail, cycle the waterfront parks then finish the day with some of the freshest fish’n’chips in Australia.
Take to some of Gippsland’s best cross country and mountain bike trails. Stand up paddle, kayak or sail on the Gippsland Lakes, then surf the famous break at Red Bluff.
