90 MILE BEACH
The 90 Mile Beach is one of the longest beaches in Australia. The Beach stretches from Port Albert all the way to Lakes Entrance. The beach actually continues on to Cape Conran, but has other names. The 90 Mile Beach and its holiday towns is a favourite for many Victorians. And itís no wonder.
The beach is located just over 250 kilometres (160 mi) from Melbourne.
The beach is made up of long sandy dunes which separate the various lakes and lagoons from the ocean. For the northern part of its route the beach runs along a sandbar on what amounts to a series of tidal islands and behind which are several large lakes and numerous shallow littoral lagoons. The three main lakes are Lake King, Lake Victoria and Lake Wellington.
The beach's length ensures that the waves break too close to the beach for good surfing and there are strong rip currents and cross-currents making the conditions somewhat hazardous for the inexperienced swimmer. The local authorities recommend that swimmers swim at Woodside, Seaspray and Lakes Entrance, which have lifesaving beach patrols during the summer season.
The beach is a white sand beach, with crashing waves and a natural bush environment. It is part of the Marine Park, which covers 2,750 hectares and 5 kilometres (3.1 mi) of coastline, 30 kilometres (19 mi) south of Sale There are basic camping facilities within the park at Emu Bight, as well as accommodation at Seaspray and Lakes Entrance The War Memorial is at Seaspray. along with an all denominations church.
