East Gippsland acknowledges the Gunaikurnai, Monero and the Bidawel people as the Traditional Custodians of the land that encompasses East Gippsland Shire. We pay our respects to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people living in East Gippsland, their Elders past and present.

Lakeside, nature and art


Nestled amongst Lake Tyers is a town that is a haven for those seeking a warm and artistically vibrant community. Especially if you have a deep appreciation for nature.


Nowa Nowa is located just 15 minutes east of Lakes Entrance along the Princes Highway. It is situated at a point where Boggy Creek cascades through the gorge (be sure to enjoy the gorge lookout) into the serene Lake Tyers.



Days can be spent cycling, strolling through the woods, casting a line for fishing, or paddling on the water in a kayak or paddle board. If you have a boat, you can even take a trip down the Lake to Lake Tyers Beach and indulge in a delicious pub meal at Waterwheel Beach Tavern. 



What makes this town even more special is its profound connection to Aboriginal history. The nearby Lake Tyers holds sacred significance for Indigenous communities. During the late 1800s, Lake Tyers Beach was the site of one of Victoria's Mission Settlements, adding layers of historical and cultural depth to this picturesque locale.
