This is when things can really get exciting as we now slowly making our way toward Wilson’s Promontory via Lakes Entrance and the Gippsland Lakes Coastal Park. Lakes entrance marks the start of the Gippsland Coastal National Park with a ninety mile beach and very long and thin sand dunes that are still relatively unspoilt to this day. However to fully appreciate this park, you need a boat as it’s the only way to really explore this area, so it’s time to jump back in to the campervan on your way down south!

|Our suggestion now would be to take a slightly more direct line heading towards Wilson’s Promontory National Park as you are in for a real treat and you are going to need a few days here to appreciate its sheer beauty. Without a doubt, this is one of Victoria’s top destinations; imagine stunning mountains covered in native forests running right down to beautiful white sandy beaches and to accompany this there are the sounds of the rivers as they make their way down to join the sea.|
