Lakes & waterways

Explore stunning lakes and waterways in Gippsland. Take to the Gippsland Lakes for aquatic adventures; swim, surf and fish in pristine waters off sandy white beaches along the coast, and head inland to hear the roar of tumbling waterfalls.

Gippsland Lakes

The largest network of inland waterways in Australia, the spectacular Gippsland Lakes are ideal for aquatic adventures and ardent relaxing. Skipper the lakes on a chartered yacht or cruiser, hit the water on skis, with paddles, or simply dip a toe in. Nature lovers, cruise boats will take you on tours to see rare dolphins, and out to island homes of koalas, seals and myriad water birds. Anglers, cast a line from hotspots near Paynesville, Metung and Lakes Entrance for exceptional lake fishing. Or simply sit by the shores and join legions of lake enthusiasts for waterfront wining, dining and sunset viewing.


Feel pristine white sand between your toes, and surf, swim and paddle at beaches along Gippsland's coast. Find sheltered bays perfect for junior swimmers and family days out from Cape Paterson in the east to the beaches of Croajingolong National Park in the west.

Grab your board and catch world-class breaks at Venus Bay and Waratah Bay, Lake Tyers Beach, West Cape Beach in the Cape Conran Coastal Park and Bastion Point Beach in Mallacoota. Wander remote, secluded beaches for unspoilt sunset views at Wilsons Promontory and Croajingolong National Park.

Plant your toes in one of the world's longest stretches of sand: Ninety Mile Beach. Stretching 90 miles along a slender sand dune separating the Gippsland Lakes from Bass Strait, the seemingly endless unspoilt beach is ideal for beach fishing, sand-dune exploring, dolphin-spotting and making a splash.


Follow fern-laden inland paths to watch waterfalls tumble and cascade amid forests of towering gums. Venture into the Strezlecki Ranges to see the highest single span falls in Victoria, Agnes Falls. Just a short drive from Noojee, visit the Toorongo Falls Reserve to wander between the tranquil Amphitheatre Falls and its impressive neighbour, Toorongo Falls.
