Boasting Australia's largest inland network of waterways, Lakes Entrance has long been a popular Gippsland holiday spot, especially for young families. Lakes Entrance is situated on the edge of Ninety Mile Beach where the Gippsland Lakes meets the Southern Ocean, on the lands of the Gunaikurnai People. The town is well equipped with accommodation, services and facilities for those enjoying their coastal getaway.
