Central Gippsland

Gippsland's waterways
The Gippsland Lakes are fed by the waters of five major rivers and fringed by Ninety Mile Beach. They provide ample opportunities for swimming, fishing, boating and sailing. Dine al fresco at a lakeside restaurant or pub, have a family picnic by a river, or take a stroll through the waterfront villages of Paynesville, Metung or Lakes Entrance.
