Lakes Entrance Highlights

  • Find a deserted space of beach at Ninety Mile Beach. This 144km long (99 miles) beach is backed by dunes, swamplands and lagoons.

  • Surfers can check out Red Bluff (near Lake Tyers), which can produce some good left and right breaks.

  • During springtime the region puts on a beautiful display of wildflowers from the coastal fringes to the highland peaks.

  • Spend some time at the Lakes National Park, which is a peaceful bushland retreat.

  • Explore the vast Gippsland Lakes, Australia's largest inland waterways, which are teaming with bird life, marine life and wildlife and are great for a variety of water sports.
