|Access 90 mile beach from these locations with a short walk over the sand dunes. Day Boats can only use the Barrier Landing.|
|The Ninety Mile Beach is the outer barrier of the Gippsland Lakes, and gives a good visual illustration of how the Lakes were formed. The Lakes area was once a large bay, but over many thousands of years, sand barriers were formed to enclose the waters flowing from the rivers. The original inner barrier is now a series of islands on the Lakes: Raymond, Flannagan, Fraser, etc. The outer barrier is the narrow strip of land that makes up the Ninety Mile Beach.|
There are many shell middens in the sand dunes - evidence of the Kurnai nation's residence here. Abundant wildlife and fish, and the mild climate of the Lakes provided an ideal year-round home.
The ocean beach is not patrolled at the Barrier Landing, Rotamah Island or along the Bunga Arm and there are strong rips and currents so great care must be taken. The only patrolled strip (during the summer season) is at Lakes Entrance near the footbridge, which is outside the charter limits.
