Lakes Coast Visitor Guide

LAKES COAST VISITOR GUIDE I PAGE 37 PORT ALBERT YARRAM WOODSIDE LOCH SPORT SALE MAFFRA STRATFORD BAIRNSDALE Paradise between lake and ocean Surrounded by Gippsland’s picturesque lakes, beaches and national parks, Loch Sport is uniquely situated as the only town on the southern side of the Gippsland Lakes, nestled between Lake Victoria to the north, with views beyond to the magnificent High Country, and the 90 Mile Beach to the south. This special town is accessed either through part of the Gippsland Lakes Coastal Park along the Seacombe-Sperm Whale Head Road or from across the water. At the eastern end of town is the entrance to the Lakes National Park, which embraces the sandy, bush-clad terrain of Sperm Whale Head peninsula, as well as Rotamah and Little Rotamah islands. It is possible to spot more than 190 bird species in the park as well as other curios creatures like swamp wallabies, eastern grey kangaroos, possums, echidnas, wombats and bats. Back in the town, an all-abilities walking track provides easy access to the 90 Mile Beach, a stunning stretch of pristine sand begged to be strolled along or have a line flung in the surf for gummy shark or fighting salmon. Or simply sit and soak up the magnificence of this famous beach. On the Lake Victoria side there are both free and commercial boat launching facilities that will have you launched and in the water before you know it. Explore in either direction, through the straits to the Port of Sale, or all the way to Lakes Entrance, and everywhere in between. With its expanse of lake frontage and beach access, and with entertainment regularly available at local venues, there’s always some- thing to do in Loch Sport. With the lake one side and the ocean the other, Loch Sport is a water lover’s paradise. WE’RE OPEN FROM 11AM EVERY DAY!
