Fishing Fleet, Lakes Entrance

Lakes Entrance, Vic

The Gippsland Lakes have an area of approximately 400 square kilometres. This boating paradise is the largest inland waterway in Australia. Lakes Wellington, Victoria and King can provide days if not weeks of exploration for sailors. The area is serviced by the larger towns of Sale and Bairnsdale but the lake shore towns of Paynesville, Metung and Lakes Entrance are all about boats and marinas, cafes and pubs, wooden jetties, fish (flattie tails of course) and chips. Sea, salt spray and relaxation. And Ninety Mile Beach a seemingly endless stretch of beach protecting this playground from the ocean.

Park your rig, hire a boat and get lost in the myriad of anchorages like Boxes Creek, Ocean Grange and up the Bunga.
