Hooked on Lakes Entrance

Looking forward to the March long weekend and wondering where to wander to?

How about a road-trip to the FREE Hooked on Lakes Entrance event on Sunday 13 March 2022.

It's the best place to try delicious seafood, learn more about where your fresh fish comes from or cast a line with experts.
