The tranquil Gippsland Lakes are a system of coastal lagoons separated from the Tasman Sea by the coastal dunes of the Ninety Mile Beach.

Seven rivers terminate at the lakes – the Latrobe, Avon, Nicholson, Tambo, Mitchell, Macalister and Thomson rivers.

A favourite holiday destination for many Victorians, days can easily be filled with a range of activities on the water or on dry land.

Boating and fishing are what attracts most to the lakes. You can bring your own boat or hire a cruiser, yacht or day boat.

Surf fishing along Ninety Mile Beach, or lake fishing from a boat, bank or jetty is popular with Bream, Flathead, Skip Jack, Luderick and Mullet the main fish caught.

Relax with a quiet paddle on the lake or river areas in a kayak or canoe.

Take a walk on the beach or through the bush.

Go for a swim along the sheltered lake shores.

Explore the park west of Loch Sport on horseback.
