You can experience just about any water activity in the Gippsland Lakes system. Stretching out over 400 square kilometers, the lakes are a network of inland waterways with something for everyone. Whether you’re a fisherman, a boatie or a bird watcher, you’ll be satisfied with what we have on offer. Come say g’day and check it out.
Our home has one of the biggest inland lakes systems in Australia fed by the Mitchell, Nicholson and Tambo rivers. Lake Wellington, Lake Victoria and Lake King make up the system joining the Bass Straight ocean at the fisherman’s village, Lakes Entrance.
Some popular outdoor activities include fishing. Whether you’re into big game fishing, catching that elusive bream or snagging a bag of prawns, we have an eclectic array of fishing for you to try your luck at.
You can also relax and take in the energy from the picturesque lakeside villages of Metung, Lakes Entrance and Paynesville surrounding the water’s edge of the three major lakes. Unwind with a local wine or beer and some delicious fresh produce while watching the sunset over the lakes or our magnificent high country.
Take a drive to Lindenow in the west and experience the Mitchell River flats where the vegetables grow feeding Australia’s east coast. Catch a flathead in Lake Tyers on the forest-clad shores.
Make your way north up the east coast to find Mallacoota where heaven awaits. This seaside village is renowned for its high-quality abalone and other types of fishing. Or head north in land and experience some of the country’s best four-wheel driving and camping in Victoria’s high country.
So no matter what you’re into, our home has something for you and we welcome you to come say hi and stay a while, you won’t regret it.
