Rotamah Island, accessible only by boat, is a naturalists' bushland delight. Surrounded by Lake Victoria and Lake Reeve to the north and the dunes of the Ninety Mile Beach to the south, the island has clearly defined tracks offering exceptional views and bird watching opportunities.

Gippsland Lakes Coastal Park


The tranquil Gippsland Lakes are a system of coastal lagoons separated from the Tasman Sea by the coastal dunes of the Ninety Mile Beach. Seven rivers terminate at the lakes - the Latrobe, Avon, Nicholson, Tambo, Mitchell, Macalister and Thomson rivers.

A favourite holiday destination for many Victorians, days can easily be filled with a range of activities on the water or on dry land. Boating and fishing are what attracts most to the lakes. Surf fishing along Ninety Mile Beach, or lake fishing from a boat, bank or jetty is popular too.

Visit in spring to see spectacular displays of wildflowers including orchids, wattle, heathland and other species.
