I am planning a 3 week trip in late Feb early March to East Gippsland Australia with the T.I. and a camper tent on the trailer. Does anyone have local knowledge? Suggestions for car-camping spots with good water access? Good spots to sail to? Day trips, overnighters? Fishing tips? - no I don't imagine you're going to tell me about the secret spot, but what is likely to be around at that time of year. Any advice gratefully received.
abonnin - there is a bunch of us down here who can clue you up on this.
We are about to embark on a short 3 day camping/sailing (possibly fishing) trip starting this Mon - Wed. Departing Paynesville (yacht club), sailing up to Loch Sport (or the direct opposite side - Storm point) and further on to Plover Point.
Last year we sailed from the Port of Sale down the river and throught the lakes all the way to Lakes Entrance (100 km), camping overnight (2 nights) along the way. Brilliant!
There are heaps of places to go and explore aroung here. Whether you are on a AI/TI or a trailer sailer, the lakes are a fantastic place to cruise around!
Apart from that, we have Lake Tyers, slightly east of Lakes Entrance. Another great waterway for sailing/fishing.
Further east there are places like Tamboon Inlet and Mallacoota. All excellent!!!!
