In this episode, I'm sharing the history of the lakeside vacation town Lakes Entrance. This is a small town in Gippsland Victoria.
Hear about the Fishing n Timber workers and dressmaker.
The farmer, boarding house keepers and storekeepers.
The people make the town.
Since colonisation Lakes Entrance was named Cunninghame, because the Entrance was not entirely open for the Lakes at the time. In fact, in 1844 it closed over completely. It became a priority of the Victorian Government to open the Entrance so the larger vessels could stop in there. The town quickly became known for fishing, timber and tourism.

Join us on Patreon for episode about the Gentlemanly Bushranger, is that an oxymoron or what? We discuss that. A coin counterfeiter, which feels like he kept copying himself over and over, did he ever get it right? Another is of a tragic architect, how does one fall from such an esteemed position to die as a footnote of his apprentices story? What brings a policeman, mailman and publican together in one episode? It's murder. The Shady Creek Murder. I have also become obsessed with the small ghost of Yallourn, Victoria. It fuelled the majority of the power industry in Gippsland. There is an a hour and half on the bushfire and subsequent 1944 Royal Commission, with more episodes coming about the SEC and Yallourn.
