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.
