Port of Sale

With the growth of shipping on the Gippsland Lakes and the establishment of a railhead at Sale in 1879, schemes emerged to develop Sale as a Port. The cutting of the 2.5 kilometre long Sale Canal in 1886-1888, linked the town to the Thomson River and established it as a busy port for steamers plying the 400sq kilometres of waterways which comprise the beautiful Gippsland Lakes system.

The Port of Sale is located at the northern end of the man-made canal, which has historically provided shipping and pleasure boats with excellent access into the heart of the township. It connects into a network of natural waterways and the Gippsland Lakes - in effect connecting Sale to Lakes Entrance by water.

The recent multi million dollar redevelopment boasts extensive berthing facilities, a 200m boardwalk, BBQ area and marine pump out facilities, picnic shelters, promendade walk, toilets, fishing platform, slipway, boat ramp and mooring facilities.

The precinct showcases Victoria's newest Performing Arts Centre, excellent restaurants, the Port of Sale Civic Centre housing Gippsland Regional Art Gallery - Sale, with nearby facilities including motel accommodation, two museums, additional restaurants, antique, retail and service shops, convenience stores and Sale's CBD.

Conveniently located in the Heart of Gippsland and in the centre of the City of Sale, the Port of Sale is an unforgettable experience with something for everyone.
