Gippsland Lakes Coastal Park

Ninety Mile Beach camping

sunny 37 °C

The tranquil Gippsland Lakes are a system of coastal lagoons separated from the Tasman Sea by the coastal dunes of the Ninety Mile Beach and covers over 400 square kilometers of waterways. We free camped at Paradise Beach which is behind the dunes on Ninety Mile Beach. Yes, the beach is actually ninety miles (145 kilometers) long but unfortunately vehicles are not allowed on the beach.

South of Paradise Beach the rusty wreck of the Trinculo is visable on Ninety Mile Beach. The Trinculo ran ashore here in 1879 on the way from Albany to Newcastle.

We drove up to Loch Sport on Lake Victoria, through The Lakes National Park and back through the Gippsland Lakes Coastal park, past Lake Reeve which has a Loch Sport Monster.

From here we will travel down to Wilsons Promontory which is the southernmost point on the Australian continent.
