So named for its proximity to the Gippsland Lakes, Lakes Entrance stands on the edge of the Bass Strait, with a population of just under 5,000 people.  Strips of white-shored land are bisected by channels of turquoise water that snake in from the ocean, surrounding the township and providing the perfect playground for all sorts of aquatic activities.

With an economy based on tourism and fishing, there’s plenty of opportunities for holidaymakers to do both.  It doesn’t matter whether you and your family love hands-on, wet-clothing and messy-hair adventures or prefer scenic, relaxed exploration – Lakes Entrance offers it all.  Segway adventures, bike rides and camel beach safaris are all fun ways to interact with the landscape, while surfing, swimming and kayaking will see you immersed in the temperate ocean waters.  Less physical options include amazing helicopter flights over the Gippsland Lakes, which are arguably even more stunning from an aerial view, as well as a variety of cruises which let you survey the foreshore and venture out into the open water.

If casting a line is your cup of tea, there’s lots of ways to get a good dose of fishing.  Chartered trips are the perfect way to focus on having fun and relaxing, and give tourists access to the open ocean and other fishing spots that aren’t accessible unless you own a boat.  Screw Loose Charters, a family-owned business, lets you range over 400 square kilometres of the Gippsland Lakes, with probable catches being bream and flathead.  Alternatively, Farout Charters offers offshore fishing across five hours – kick back on the decks of the Far Out II and enjoy the ocean spray on your face.  More experienced fishermen can attempt land-based fishing and angling from nearby locations like Lakes Entrance and Tamboon Inlet.

Those wanting a break from the water can find satisfaction in the pristine wilderness of East Gippsland, the vast tract of untouched forest known as the Emerald Link.  Experience one of the world’s oldest forests, as well as rare plants and animals that are found nowhere else on earth.

Hit the water and get your fishing game on at Lakes Entrance.  Book now with Club Wyndham.
