The Surfer's Paradise
Gippsland Lakes is the largest inland waterway in Australia with 400 sq.
Lakes Entrance provides
the opening to the Ocean for Lake King, Lake Victoria, Lake Reeve and even
Lake Wellington in East Gippsland of Victoria.
This openning is
also the only gateway for vessels from the local fishing fleet to pass
throught it to/from the Ocean. The openning is constantly maintained by
the sand dredger, April Hamer, to ensure it is suitable for vessels to
The Ninety Mile Beach
facing the Ocean and along the Lakes is a surfer's paradise
As you drive approaching Lake Entrance,
the road drops steeply and we saw spectacular
views of Lakes and Ocean.
Looking at Lakes Entrance (far left)
from the Look-out point near Kalima Hotel.....
on the right is part of Lake King which
merges with Lake Reeve and Lake Victoria, the later links to Lake Wellington
thru a narrow in-land waterway, McClennan Strait.
