Walks in East Gippsland
Gippsland's great walks
Home to the Gippsland Lakes, Ninety Mile Beach and beautiful inland forests, East Gippsland is a walker's paradise. Click on the walk name for route map, directions, photos and information about each walk.
The Entrance walk (5km return)
A stunning loop walk, following the coastal bush track to the actual Lakes 'Entrance', with plenty of highlights. You can choose to return along the track or via the wild, beautiful Ninety Mile Beach.
Kalimna Jerry walk, Lakes Entrance (4km return)
The hidden gem of Lakes Entrance, this out-of-the-way walk affords some of the best and most uncluttered views over the town and extensive system of waterways this region is famed for.
Esplanade walk, Lakes Entrance (5km one-way)
The best view of the Gippsland Lakes is the waterfront view! Thankfully there's a walking path tracing the water from one end of Lakes Entrance (Bullock Island) to the other (Eastern Beach).
These walks were mapped with assistance from Lakes Entrance Action and Development Association.
Metung waterfront walk, 5km
This gorgeous 5.5km return walk takes you all the way along Metung's picturesque waterfront, from Chinaman's Creek to Shaving Point.
It's a beautiful walk, with Metung surrounded on three sides by water! The walk is mainly along sealed track and boardwalk so it's suitable for most abilities. However, dress for all weather as the wind can be fierce coming off the Lakes / Bancroft Bay as you exit the town and head toward Shaving Point.
Paynesville and Raymond Island
Raymond Island koala walk (3km loop)
Catch the free ferry over to Raymond Island from Paynesville to enjoy this gorgeous little loop through koala habitat before heading back along the boardwalk with views over the Gippsland Lakes.
Mitchell River National Park
Den of Nargun walk, 4km circuit
Tradition has it that the Nargun lives here, a fierce being, half human and half stone. The Gunaikurnai people ask you to respect this special place by admiring the cave from a distance.
