A bustling fishing port, an esplanade of shops and cafes, safe swimming beaches, and a short walk to the ocean beach. Lakes Entrance truly deserves its reputation as a great place for family holidays. There's so much to do: fishing and swimming, off-the-beach sailing, paddle boats and mini golf, picnics, boat trips and long walks. The fishing fleet, moored adjacent to the main street, is a great sight. It's also the source of abundant seafood, which can be savoured in the restaurants, or bought fresh from the Fisherman's Co-op for the barbecue. In season, just-caught prawns are sold directly from the trawlers.
