The Esplanade Resort & Spa, Gippsland Lakes


A modern hotel with apartments in an excellent location for exploring the Gippsland Lakes.

Along the coastal route between Sydney and Melbourne, the Gippsland Lakes is an ideal stopover point, offering a reposeful surrounding and a great location for water-based activities. With access to two national parks, this collection of inland waterways is brilliant for exploration on foot. Take a walk along Ninety Mile Beach, one of the world’s longest, unspoilt stretches of sand, and go on a nature trail and try to spot kangaroos in the bush or dolphins in the sea. The Lakes are also loved for its fishing and water activities such as waterskiing, kayaking and scuba diving.

At the hotel, there are clean and modern rooms with standard amenities, plus a range of one to three-bedroom apartments that are perfect for groups and families. Apartments include a fully functioning kitchen and a balcony. Stop by the Illuka day spa for calming treatments using Aveda products.
