Lakes Entrance and District
Lakes Entrance and District includes Lakes Entrance, Lake Bunga, Lake Tyers, Lake Tyers Beach and Kalimna.
Home to 5,500 residents and one of Victoria’s premier tourism destinations, Lakes Entrance is beloved for its swimming beaches, waterfront cafes and commercial fishing boats, many of which sell the day’s catch from the jetties. Set on the edge of Ninety Mile Beach where the Gippsland Lakes meet the ocean, Lakes Entrance is a significant commercial precinct and offers a range of lifestyle and recreational services, including health, retail and education.
A short drive from Lakes Entrance, Lake Tyers, Lake Bunga and Lake Tyers Beach offer real tranquility. Traditionally known as a tourist destination, Lake Tyers has a growing permanent population and a mix of permanent and holiday houses.

A series of innovative printmaking workshops will be held in Lakes Entrance during the January school holiday. Lakes Entrance locals, both young and old, are being encouraged to roll up their sleeves and get creative about what they love about their community.
The community arts workshops are a part of the Lanewayz in Lakes Project, which will help create an outdoor gallery in the laneway between Gray Street and the Esplanade.
The Lanewayz in Lakes Project was made possible by a $20,000 grant from the Victorian Government Department of Justice and Regulation Graffiti Prevention Grant Program. Lanewayz in Lakes will transform the laneway into a contemporary, welcoming green space.
