Victoria: The Gippsland Lakes
The Gippsland Lakes are a large and complex group of coastal lagoons, separated from the sea by broad sandy barriers. They include Lake Wellington (138 sq km; shoreline length 60 km), Lake Victoria (110 sq km; shoreline length just over 100 km), Lake King (92 sq km; shoreline length 160 km), and a number of smaller lagoons associated with extensive swamps on a low-lying depositional coastal plain (Bird 1978).
