Lakes Entrance City Guide
Located in eastern Victoria, it doesn't get much more "waterfront" than Lakes Entrance. That's because the city is nestled in between four different bodies of water - The Narrows, North Arm, Cunninghame Arm, and the Bass Strait. Is there any wonder why it's such a popular tourist resort and thriving fishing port?
Lakes Entrance is chock full of water-related activities. Start by taking a boat tour of the area. Then, cap off the day with one of the popular wine cruises like the Wyanga Winery Cruise. It offers the area's favourite wines and gourmet treats.
While you're on the water, keep an eye out for local wildlife. With so many fishermen in the area, there are always plenty of seabirds looking for a handout. Amazingly, they'll actually wait in line to get it!
If you want to be adventurous, try your hand at surfing on the 90 Mile Beach. The golden sand and thick green trees behind it will look even better from out in the water!
For a great view from dry land, take a walk on the footbridge. Along the way, you'll cross over Cunninghame Arm and head to the 90 Mile Beach. The footbridge is also a great place to fish if you don't want to charter a boat.
Seafood is the name of the game in Lakes Entrance. One of the most popular restaurants in town is The Boathouse - which combines the freshest catch with a tranquil, waterfront setting.
Once you're full, The Boathouse also has a separate, equally-popular bar where you can spend the rest of your evening.
Hotels in all price ranges line the water in Lakes Entrance. Most of them can be found on Esplanade facing south - meaning you'll have a great view of Cunninghame Arm.
