About Lakes Entrance

Tucked into a vast network of inland waterways in eastern Victoria, Lakes Entrance is a primary gateway to the Gippsland Lakes. Families flock to the beaches, bustling esplanade and museums, while anglers take fishing expeditions year-round.

Things to do in Lakes Entrance

The Gippsland Lakes comprise over 600 square kilometres of lagoons, lakes and marshes with coastal dunes and thriving marine life. Thousands of dolphins, swans, coots and pelicans populate the marshes, sand spits and lakes. Don’t miss climbing the dunes at Ninety Mile Beach, which separate the lakes from the ocean.

The lakes also harbour archaeological sites, such as burial grounds and shell middens. At Jeremy Point Lookout on Princes Highway, you can get sweeping views of the water and Bass Strait and learn about Aboriginal legends. Feel like getting out onto the lakes? Rent a kayak, paddle boat, aquabike, catamaran or paddle skis at the footbridge leading to Ninety Mile Beach.

Get some sun and fun at Lakes Entrance Beach and stroll the lively esplanade along the water’s edge. Keep an eye out for wooden sculptures depicting famous scenes from World War I. Stop by the cellar door for Wyanga Park Vineyards and Winery and bring the kids along to enjoy its playground, pet pigs and bird aviary.

The kids will also love seeing blue-ringed octopuses at Griffiths Sea Shell Museum. Enjoy a family day out at Kinkuna Country Fun and Fauna Park, with a wildlife park, waterslides, miniature golf, jumping castle and toboggan rides.

Getting around Lakes Entrance

Rental cars are available in Bairnsdale, about 38 kilometres from Lake Entrance. To traverse the numerous lakes, you can hire a self-drive boat or take a ferry or water taxi. Taxis and buses provide convenient transportation in town.

  • What is the best place in Lakes Entrance for bars and restaurants?

    Lakes Entrance lies on the south-east coast of the Australian state of Victoria, a couple of hundred miles east of Melbourne. It’s a resort town set on the North Arm of the Mitchell River, which creates a series of lakes, so finding scenic accommodation in Lakes Entrance isn’t difficult. The restaurants and cafes here, such as local favourite Miriam’s Restaurant, serve a lot of local seafood. You can also visit Wyanga Park Winery for modern-Australian finger food paired with regional wines. The Pinocchio Inn Restaurant serves Italian food and has a late-night bar. Another favourite hangout for a few drinks and a light seafood meal is Ferryman’s Seafood Cafe, on the waterfront. For something a little different, you can catch a boat ride to The Floating Dragon, to dine in the middle of Western Boat Harbour. Hotels in Lakes Entrance are usually within walking distance of food establishments – have a look at 5 Knots Metung.

  • What is the best place for a family holiday in Lakes Entrance?

    One of the best ways to explore the things to see in Lake Entrance is by bicycle. The Esplanade has been built with dual footpaths, one for cyclists and one for pedestrians. You’ll pass through local flora, and there are wooden statues by local artists on the route. You can stop for refreshments along the way at one of the coffee shops or fish and chipperies, and if these are full, get takeaway and picnic on the lush lawns. The kids will also jump at the chance to go on a camel ride along the length of Easter Beach. Alternatively, go to the North Arm Playground, which has a skatepark and a barbeque area. The Griffiths Sea Shell Museum is another attraction that captivates the young ones. Look for family-friendly Lakes Entrance hotels nearby, like The Esplanade Motel.

For scenic views of the town and all of its lakes, head to Jemmy’s Point, which has a number of lookout points.

Another way to explore is to hire a paddle boat or an aqua bike and make your way from one lake to another, joined by small tributaries of the Mitchell River. Otherwise, you can ride the famous Thunderbird, which doesn’t travel as fast as the name implies – it’s an instructive guided boat trip through the lakes. We can recommend booking at Bellevue on the Lakes.
