Eastern Beach - Lakes Entrance VIC

- 28 Jan

1 Eastern beach
Lakes Entrance 3909, VIC

Eastern Beach is the northern section of the great Ninety Mile Beach. It begins at Red Bluff, a popular surfing spot, and runs straight west-south-westerly for 8 km to the training walls at Lakes Entrance. The beach faces straight into the dominant southerly waves and receives waves averaging 1.5 m. These waves, as for most of Ninety Mile Beach, produce a 100 m wide surf zone characterised by a usually steep beach face, then a 50 m wide, 2-3 m deep trough fronted by a continuous bar. This bar is cut by rip channels and currents every 200 m; resulting in up to 30 or more rips along the beach. The Lakes Entrance Surf Life Saving Club is located at the end of the footbridge from the town of Lakes Entrance. This is a popular beach for bathing, surfing, walking and fishing; particularly as it is the closest and most accessible beach to Lakes Entrance. The surf lifesaving club was founded in 1956 and averages 17 rescues a year. The beach is only accessible by car at three locations: Red Bluff in the north; at the Eastern Beach car park in the centre; and via the Lakes Entrance footbridge.

Only bathe between the flags at the surf club, as this is an exposed beach with deep troughs and persistent rips. Rips increase adjacent to Red Bluff and toward the entrance walls. Strong winds, particularly from the south and west, intensify the longshore and rip currents.
