Lakes Entranceis a seaside town and fishing port in eastern Victoria, Australia. It is situated approximately 320 kilometers east of Melbourne connecting the Gippsland Lakes to the Bass Strait.
We stopped here for a coffee break on our way to Sydney via coast. Lakes Entrance is actually the “entrance” into the Gippsland Lakes, so there is a wonderful interior water area where the boats bring in fresh fish or play in the quieter water or watch the birds and then you can take a footbridge over the waterway to 90 mile beach. This is a wonderful nature trail or walk part of 90-mile beach. This a wonderful place to spend a day or longer. The Lakes are just stunning. As you approach the town you get a lovely vista of the entire region and it is just beautiful. Best of all, its seafood heaven.
You can hire a boat, you don’t have to bring your own. The Gippsland Lakes cover quite a large area. It has a number of accommodation options and several better-than-average restaurants. If you don’t catch your own fish, you can get some fresh on the day from the professional fishermen who operate out of Lakes Entrance.
This is an amazing part of the world. So rugged yet so beautiful. There is something for everyone. Great drives, hiking opportunities, several easy walking trails, cruising on the lakes, fishing, surfing and just a great spot to stop for some relaxation or future longer beach holidays with family. The fishermen bringing fish and cleaning it on the jetties fascinated our kids. For more detail shots please check out our Photography page 🙂
