Hooked on Lakes Entrance

Looking forward to the March long weekend and wondering how you can support bushfire affected communities?

How about a road-trip to the free Hooked on Lakes Entrance event on Sunday 8 March 2020?!

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

Even better, getting down to Gippsland is a huge help to bushfire affected communities, so stay locally, spend in small towns and bring an empty esky to help kickstart regional businesses that have endured a tough summer trade.

Hooked on Lakes Entrance is ideal for families keen to explore beautiful waterways over a long weekend, and a great way to support the road to recovery for bushfire affected communities still getting back on their feet.
