Gippsland Lakes Coastal Park

The tranquil Gippsland Lakes are a system of coastal lagoons separated from the Tasman Sea by the coastal dunes of the Ninety Mile Beach.

Seven rivers terminate at the lakes - the Latrobe, Avon, Nicholson, Tambo, Mitchell, Macalister and Thomson rivers.

They are a favourite holiday destination for many Victorians, and days can easily be filled with a range of activities on the water or on dry land.

Boating and fishing are what attracts most to the lakes. You can bring your own boat or hire a cruiser, yacht or day boat.

Surf fishing along Ninety Mile Beach, or lake fishing from a boat, bank or jetty is popular with Bream, Flathead, Skip Jack, Luderick and Mullet the main fish caught.

You could also take a quiet paddle on the lake or river areas in a kayak or canoe, take a walk on the beach or through the bush or go for a swim along the sheltered lake shores.

Activities

Bushwalking (hiking), water activities, swimming, horse riding, fishing.

Camping
