Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Very relaxing walk and wonderful views. The trail could do with a trim & tidy up, as some places were a bit rough and overgrown. I went out to the foreshore and walked along the sand which was fun for exploring and watching the boats come and go. Reaching the entrance is rewarding and really interesting. There is old machinery, like a steam winch and a nice board walk to sit and watch the boats and animals. Photographers paradise in all directions!! Then I made my way back to Lakes Entrance along the beach. The noise of the waves and the fact I was the only person walking along the sand was absolutely blissful.

This is a beautiful walk fit for all levels. You can do a leisurely stroll or at fast pace. It starts along a sandy track but well maintained and surrounded by bush. There are stops along the way with information and views. Soon you reach Flagstaff Jetty, toilets available here (not very clean). Then a short walk to the Entrance. Great view of the actual entrance and even spotted some fur seals. Then we walked back along Ninety Mile Beach which was also a beautiful walk on the sand. Be careful of the tides as we got caught at some tight ends. Overall a very nice walk and takes a good 2-3 hours.

This presented a great opportunity to stretch the legs after a long drive. Spending the night over at Lakes Entrance meant we could do the Entrance Walk and treat it as a workout at the same time. From Myer Street you walk over the footbridge and then take the first right onto the track signposted "The Entrance Walk". The track is a bit sandy in places with some steps as well. After 2kms or so you reach The Entrance where the lakes meet the ocean - great views of the surrounding countryside and ocean from Flagstaff Hill lookout. Then you follow the beach all the way back - I did the return bit at high tide so the sand was very soft.

I completed the walk in 40 minutes and I'm almost 60 years old - but it was a workout and a fast power walk for me. A more leisurely walk would probably take more like 90 minutes.

I've been to Lakes Entrance before, but never actually seen the Entrance. This walk starts when you cross the footbridge and turn right, and winds through the bushland until you reach the entrance which was built there many years ago. There's plenty of historical information available and old machinery still lying around.

We then walked back along 90 Mile Beach to the surf club, and back across to cross the bridge. Highly recommended.

This walk was 2.4 Klm but felt more like 3.4. Most of it was sandy but there were some sections with rubber track and the steps were well formed. A lot of it was in the shade but it was still quite warm even though the day was mid 20’s. You felt like you must be close then came upon another marker telling you there was still a few hundred meters to go! On the way back it took us 10 minutes to walk 600 meters but only 5 mins to walk the next 500 meters. I’m not sure the signs are accurate!😊 The Entrance was worth it though. There is the warning lights with the old shipwreck bell and on the opposite side you can see the seals snoozing away or playing in the water. There are toilets by the old jetties before the last keg of the walk. Take a drink and wear a hat!!

This is an arduous walk in here. We do not really liked it as billed or advertissed or people talked.

A very enjoyable walk, took us about 1hr 30mins. It wasn’t too busy along the track which was nice. Walking out to the mouth was a great way to see the seals playing and we also saw some dolphins when we did the history track.

Really wanted to do this walk. Found it was sand all the way and too hard for older people.
Would be wonderful if it was paved !

The joy of being in Lakes Entrance is that there are literally walks everywhere... in fact, there are walks to the 'walk'... but to begin this walk... you need to go to the Cunningham Arm Footbridge and cross, then turn right immediately. The walk is signposted at this point.

Continue along the walk, until you arrive at the Entrance. Walk back along the beach, until you arrive at the Surf Lifesaving Lookout tower. That takes you back across the Footbridge.

The area is stunning ... and you will see birdlife. You may even see seals. What you will be assured of is a stunning view.

Once across the Cunninghame Arm Footbridge, I found a sign for the Entrance Walk. Appears it is quite extensive.

Perhaps I was tired, but I found the track quite irregular, soft and hard going. I didn't go far before turning back but with approirate footwear, it would seem worth an explore.
