Lakes Entrance Visitor Information Centre is the first place to come for information on the Lakes and Wilderness Region. The best known destination, the Gippsland Lakes, is the biggest and most beautiful expanse of inland waterways in the southern hemisphere. Walk across the sand dunes and you're right on the famous Ninety Mile Beach.With eight magnificent National Parks on the coast and in the high country of Gippsland, that is more than any other region of Australia. The roll call includes the Alpine National Park (Victoria's biggest), the Snowy River National Park and the UNESCO- listed Croajingalong National Park that embraces 100 kilometres of coastline.The region has two of Australia's greatest driving routes. The Great Alpine Road, which winds through the Alpine National Park and Victoria's high country. The Sydney to Melbourne Coastal Drive, which in East Gippsland, starts at Croajingalong National Park and ends at the Gippsland Lakes.With the country's biggest fishing port at Lakes Entrance, we're the fishing capital of Australia. (Just ask any serious recreational angler who has fished here).The region is also very well known for doing very little at all. You could book a lakeside apartment or canal villa with a boat moored at your private jetty, and never leave the waterways for your entire holiday. Or stay in a country inn way up in the clear mountain air of Victoria's Alpine country and simply wander through the wildflowers.
The Lakes Entrance Visitor Information Centre is easily accessible from Melbourne and Sydney. If you are coming from Melbourne turn left at the first roundabout coming into town. If you are coming from Sydney turn right at the first roundabout- this is at the other end of town.
