Bung Yarnda on Princes Highway An interesting roadside site dedicated to the Kurnai-Gunnai people and their environment pre the arrival of the europeans.

A quiet and restful area for bite of lunch on the tables and a wander.
The early days of the Tavern at Lake Tyers Beach
The Water Wheel Beach Tavern has had a long and treasured place in our hearts.

It is just not a watering hole but a meeting place with great atmosphere and locals.

An original pamphlet came to light recently and we thought it deserved a place on our history pages.

However don't expect the Tavern to look the same it is being renovated!!!
Ruston Proctor Co Lincoln There are some interesting relics from the days of steam and extensive logging to be found at the  Mingling Waters Cafe at Nowa Nowa.

The Tressle Bridge just before you come into Nowa Nowa from Lakes Entrance is a fascinating insight into the times when wood was the main building material.

The Curlip

The Curlip at Lakes Entrance
The Curlip is a  lovely bit of recreated history with a reconstructed boat of a bygone era on the lakes and rivers.  This is normally moored at Marlo on the Snowy River and is available for hire on a restricted basis.
