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.

The Lakes National Park

Smack bang in the middle of the Gippsland Lakes, you will find The Lakes National Park. 

Only accessible by boat, the park takes in Sperm Whale Head peninsula and Rotamah and Little Rotamah Islands. Hundreds of species of birds call this area home including the rare white-bellied sea eagle and the endangered little tem.  The birds share the park with their grounded friends, eastern grey kangaroos, wallabies, echidnas and wombats. You can take in a number of walking trails, which are great for bird watching and take advantage of Point Wilson with its picnic areas, barbecues, toilets, water and jetty.
