90 Mile Beach is a long strip of beach with soft golden sand and pretty strong waves. At Lakes Entrance, this is a good place to laze by the beach, get a tan, go fishing and take a walk.The sand was pretty hot though so you either walk with your shoes on or walk along the water edge. There is a life guard on duty and facilities are being built for...more
We kept reading about this footbridge so let's check out what's so great about it. The footbridge actually spans Gippsland Lakes' Cunninghame Arm and takes us to the start of the 90 Mile Beach.As we walked along the footbridge, we saw many golden oldies fishing and having a cup of coffee.

I would just like to warn travelers about a couple of water Dangers.
When swimming on the ocean beach, there are usually Life Saver Guards on duty. Swim within the flags they have set up on the beach, as the rip in the water can be quite strong and you may get into trouble if you swim outside the flag area.
Secondly if you are attempting to go through the entance from the lakes to the ocean by boat, be very careful as there is a shifting sand bar hiding under the water just outside the ocean entrance and it has claimed several lives.
About 1km before you enter Nowa Nowa town, en route to Buchan Caves. PLEASE do not forgo this opportunity to see the 60 Foot bridge built long ago by Australian pioneers! Majestic view
