The Gippsland Lakes complex covers over 400 square kilometres. Think about that! That’s a lot of water!
Seven major rivers flow into the lakes, The Tambo, Nicholson and Mitchell in the east, the Avon, Latrobe, Macalister and the Thomson in the west. Most of these rivers have their headwaters in the high country to the north.
The main lakes themselves are known as Lake King, Lake Victoria and Lake Wellington. Just over the sand dunes, is Bass Straight and the Ninety Mile Beach. Lake Reeve is a shallow body of water. Lake Tyers, and Lake Bunga to the east are not classed as part of the lakes system.
Let’s have a look at our trip on the lakes. We travel from Lakes Entrance, all the way to Sale, in our Tinny!

They can lay carpet and build you a mattress that fits in your v-berth. A sailmaker specialises in designing, manufacturing and trimming sails to get your boat sailing well. Shipwrights build boats.
