We depart from Melbourne and travel east along the Princes Hwy passing through Warragul, Moe, Traralgon, Sale and Bairnsdale, where we stop for morning tea.
Afterwards, we then visit St Mary’s Roman Catholic Church. This is one of the most notable landmarks of Bairnsdale, known for its distinctively tall tower and murals on its ceiling and walls. These murals were painted by out of work Italian artist Francesco Floreani during the Great Depression and remain a fascination to this day.
Then we will travel to our destination – Lakes Entrance arriving at our motel around 5 pm. We will then freshen up and then enjoy dinner with our friends.

This morning soon after our breakfast we shall explore the area by touring around to see the amazing mountains to inland lakes as rural Gippsland reach from east of outlying Melbourne, out to the border with NSW to the west and with the Great Dividing Range to the north, and to the south the roaring Bass Strait.
Lakes Entrance is the home to one of the biggest fishing fleets in Australia. Lakes Entrance is well supplied with seafood and fish restaurants on the wide esplanade. See the Fisherman’s’ Co-op bring in their catch from the harbourside viewing platform and view an amazing collection of seashells.
