Things to do around Eastern Beach Holiday Park
Eastern Beach Holiday Park is located just a few minutes north of Lakes Entrance, the gateway to Victoria’s incredible inland water system, with access to the walking track, footbridge and bridge close by.
As a water-front area, Lakes Entrance is a very popular all year round holiday destination, including during winter months when the climate is often a few degrees warmer than Melbourne. The main thoroughfare of the Esplanade runs along the shoreline of the Cunninghame Arm inlet, with marinas and attractive foreshore gardens on one side, and a good selection of shops and restaurants on the other. A number of wooden sculptures, carved out of old tree trunks, can be found along the Esplanade, and they represent images of Australia at war.
Boasting Australia’s largest inland network of waterways, Lakes Entrance has been a popular holiday spot for more than 100 years.
Lakes Entrance is situated on the edge of Ninety Mile Beach where the Gippsland Lakes meets the Southern Ocean. The town has a population of approximately 5,250.
Cross the footbridge to the popular Ninety Mile Beach surf beach, patrolled by lifesavers during the summer months, or take a hike to ‘the entrance’ of the Gippsland Lakes. Visitors can enjoy a boat cruise on the Lakes or hire a paddleboat or catamaran in the summer months. Nearby scenic Lake Tyers is bordered by the ocean, a state forest and a river that meanders inland to Nowa Nowa.
Lakes Entrance is renowned as a ‘seafood capital’ due to the large number of fishing trawlers operating in the area. Catch your own fish or savour the catches from fresh seafood shops
