Box's Creek

Google Code
Box's Creek is one of the best moorings on the Lakes: sheltered in all weather, lovely tree-lined banks, a good walking track, and lots of birdlife, including sea eagles. There isn't a jetty (all the jetties in Box's Creek are private), but along the sheltered beach just inside the point there are mooring poles where you can nudge the boat onto the shore. There's a toilet nearby on the track to the bluff. From the top of the bluff there's a lookout with spectacular views over Bancroft Bay.

Until recently there was an interesting house built on a jetty in Box's Creek, called Hove To. It was built in the 1950s - quite illegally - and has outlasted attempts to have it dismantled until 2011. It's now very much part of the history of the creek.

The walking track from the beach goes along one bank of Box's Creek, across a bridge at the top of the creek, and along the opposite side.

Do watch out for the sea eagles when you're moored here. They have a nest just inland from Box's Creek, and fly down the creek in the early morning and return late afternoon. They are one of 25 breeding pairs on the Gippsland Lakes and around November you might see the young fledglings.
