Gippsland Lakes Coastal Park Tatungalung Country

Gippsland Lakes Coastal Park is one of the jointly managed parks within Gippsland. The Joint Management agreement recognises the fact that the Gunaikurnai people hold Aboriginal Title and maintain a strong connection to Country. As custodians of the land, they are the rightful people who speak for their Country. These parks and reserves are cultural landscapes that continue to be part of Gunaikurnai living culture. For more information on Joint Management, please visit the Gunaikurnai Traditional Owner Land Management Board and the Gunaikurnai Land and Waters Aboriginal Corporation.

Gippsland Lakes Coastal Park adjoins an extensive lake system separated from the Tasman Sea by the sand dunes of Ninety Mile Beach. Swim, kayak, boat, or fish along the scenic expanses of sheltered water. Among the tranquil campgrounds, choose from 90 Mile Beach, Bunga Arm or Paradise Beach.

Set sail on the Gippsland Lakes. Hire a yacht, boat, canoe or kayak, bring your own or join a tour. 90 Mile Beach is well known for its surf fishing, while the calm waters of Gippsland Lakes are great for catching salmon, tailor, whiting, flathead and bream.

With many places to camp, pitch a tent along Shoreline Drive or Paradise Beach and hear the roar of the ocean in the distance. Or opt for the more remote fee based camping at Bunga Arm, only accessible by boat. If camping isn’t your thing, base yourself at accommodation in Loch Sport, Paynesville, Metung or Lakes Entrance – all gateways into the Gippsland Lakes Coastal Park.
