- The Gippsland Lakes are a must place to visit or holiday at in Victoria .
Miles of beautiful waterways fed by about six decent rivers and the only entry to the ocean is the man made entrance At the town of Lakes Entrance which is itself a major holiday destination.
The lakes are a huge tourist attraction, boating and fishing and most water sports are carried out on these great waters . There is a big fishing fleet based at Lakes Entrance that fish the ocean waters not the lake waters.
There are a few lovely towns on the sides of the Lakes that basically survive from the tourism the lakes bring.
Make sure you make a trip to the lakes you will not be disappointedWritten 25 August 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- stunning place to sit watch the wave roll in a great shop just before the beach to get that cold drink or hot coffee and nice spot to swimWritten 13 September 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- Lovely property about 10 mins from Lakes Entrance. The homestead is open only at certain times but there is plenty of information around to learn about the place including photographs. There is a few lovely walks around the property including one down 95 steps down to the jetty with nice views and an easier walk to farm sheds. There's a small swing set for young children near the entry buildings and a small shop (again open at certain times). We were here on a windy and cold day however this would be a lovely place to picnic and venture around on a sunny day.Written 8 May 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- Kids and wineries usually don’t mix. Surprisingly, and Wyanga Park Winery, they beautifully do! As we arrived, ambling along the road was a wonderful wombat to welcome us, followed by two year old Alby, wagging his tail to say hello as soon as we exited the car, and then he graciously walked us to the front door where we were met by the friendly WPW team.
What followed was an unexpected two hours of casual comfort. Great hosts, inviting chefs, eclectic artwork and the most delicious (locally sourced) fare. Fresh seafood chowder, well seasoned Moroccan lamb, a gorgeous beef pie.. we finished every dripping on every plate served. All finely paired with a selection of their trademark wines (make sure you try the frozen muscat)!
Though I don’t know when we will be back to Wyanga, I will gladly point out this family establishment to anyone who will listen, and look forward to them telling me how special their visit was.Written 26 June 2022
- On my first day in Lakes Entrance I visited the information centre.
Very friendly helpful staff.
A very good centre right on the main road as you enter town from the Melbourne side,impossible to miss it .
A very good selection of information brochures for the immediate area and beyond.Written 20 August 2022
- such a wonderful diverse collection of shells. From all the over the world, spanning the decades. Definitely worth dropping in.Written 19 January 2021
- Did the walk on a lovely sunny winters morning.
A easy track well signposted , there are a few steps now and then but nothing hard.
Plenty of little birds chirping away and darting here and there, heard the whip bird a lot but never saw one. It was nice walking in the shade of the native bush and there are seats now and then if you need a rest. There are a couple of access tracks to the Ninety Mile Beach which is beautiful. It is about 5 km return walk. Near the entrance there are a few relics to see from when the entrance was built. Notice boards give you the history of these .Also there are a few old cottages to see at the Historic Precinct, read there history too. The entrance is right on the beach so a good option is to walk back along the Ninety Mile Beach.
A walk well worth doing, plenty to see, I was away nearly three hours.Written 21 August 2022
- This is a great bridge to take you over to the Ninety Mile Beach
Went across a few times while staying in Lakes for a few days.
It is nice to see they have retained a small section of the old wooden bridge that I remember from years gone by .
The old bridge was opened in 1937 the new one in 2009.
Quite often see people fishing from the bridge. It is nice to walk across at night when all lit upWritten 21 August 2022
- This is a great park that you see as you enter town on the highway from the Melbourne side .
It sits beside the waters of the North Arm near the big bridge .
Good barbecue and toilet facilities and a abundance of playground equipment for all ages.
A great place to stop and enjoy a picnic and just relax for a whileWritten 25 August 2022
- Visited the Aquadome a couple of times this week, very impressed with the facilities.
Great pools and gym, very clean and well run, friendly staff.
Plenty of car parking and not too busy , I went mid morning each time .
My main activity was the spa, lovely and warm and good jets that gave the body a good massage .
The changing rooms, showers etc were good and clean .
Looks like they run a few different classes activities there which is great .
Well worth spending time there, very enjoyableWritten 25 August 2022
- What an incredible beach! You follow the signs to the large carpark and there are toilets, BBQ areas, children's playground with a grassy area ... then it's a very short walk to the beach from the carpark.
The beach is pristine and stunning and when I arrived...there were only fishermen enjoying it. It was so very quiet. This is a beach that is definitely worth visiting... it has everything on offer.Written 28 January 2020
- Unless you have a water craft you won’t be able to visit this island. Which makes it great for those who do. Bird watching and fishing heavenWritten 17 April 2019
- Love walking down here for morning or evening stroll. Lots of people out and about. Popular place for a walkWritten 6 February 2021
- Walked from the footbridge a bit over 2 kilometres.
Great to see the Entrance walls up close and see some of the old machinery used to build the sea walls of the entrance .
Notices tell you a little about each piece but it would be good if the plant growth was cleared around each piece so it is easier to see and find .
Interesting to look at the old cottages there that were built years ago and information boards give the history of each dwelling, seems like most are still owned by the original families that built them .
There is a old barge preserved in the area undercover called the Lady Harriet Barge , it is quite historic and very interesting to view.
From here it is only a short walk to the actual walls of the Lakes Entrance and the Ninety Mile Beach .
A pleasant walk and well worth seeing the Historic AreaWritten 23 August 2022
- What a wonderful, free facility for local dogs to exercise and visiting pets to discover. Only 1.2 kilometres down a country lane from the roadway, and a million new scents for your pooch to enjoy. Built on private land with the help of State Government funding, Brackenbush provides the perfect blend of safety with the freedom for happy dogs to run, sniff and play. 3 fully fenced paddocks with the middle one for the timid or unsocialised, it is a great solution for all pets to experience the country air and open spaces. Our GSP "Kasper" gets excited when the car is heading toward his favourite venue, and is off like a bullet once released into the large paddock. Everything has been well thought out, with water, pooper scoopers and holding cages all readily available for your dogs to have a great visit.Written 14 July 2020
