Gippsland Lakes Coastal Park

National Park - Victoria


The Gippsland Lakes Coastal Park is a serene retreat in Central Gippsland - stretching along the narrow expanse of Ninety Mile Beach from Seaspray to Lakes Entrance. An interconnected area of wetlands and coast, the park consists of the Boole Poole Peninsula, Bunga Arm and many other small islands. This unique and picturesque paradise contains diverse terrestrial and marine environments, with the lakes and marine coastal parks offering countless recreational activities.

Follow Shoreline Drive from Paradise Beach to Seaspray along the Western side of the park to truly immerse yourself in the beauty of our natural world. Here, you can partake in oceanside bushwalks, swim in the soothing sea and kayak across the scenic lakes. Hire a yacht, boat, canoe or kayak, bring your own or join a tour. Ninety Mile Beach is well known for its surf fishing, whilst the calm waters of the Gippsland lakes are great for catching salmon, tailor, whiting, flathead and bream.

With many places to camp, you can pitch a tent or park your van at free camping sites along Shoreline Drive, or paid sites at Paradise Beach, where you can hear the soothing roar of the waves crashing onto the nearby shore. Alternatively, you could opt for a more remote fee based camping option at Bunga Arm - which is only accessible by boat. If camping isn’t your style- base yourself at Loch Sport, Paynesville, Metung or Lakes Entrance - all gateways into the Gippsland Lakes Coastal Park. Closer to Loch Sport you will find the ultimate serenity nestled in the bush. Spoon Bay and Red Bluff campgrounds provide an escape from the hustle and bustle of the city. A little off the beaten track, you are sure to have a secluded lakeside getaway.

As rivers, lakes and reservoirs are natural environments, you may encounter hazards. Follow our water safety advice to make sure your day out at Gippsland Lakes Coastal Park is a safe and enjoyable one.

All 20 of these campsites are FREE. The sites are of varying sizes and degree of difficulty getting in, setting up and getting out. Best to walk in to check it out if you’re unsure, but there are many that have sufficient space for a big motorhome. Each camp has access to the beach via a sandy track over the dunes.
