Australia's Greatest Boats

Trade A BoatEast Gippsland Marketing Inc.(EGMI), in partnership with Destination Gippsland Limited (DGL), hosted two photograph and video crews in East Gippsland in November 2014 as part of a promotion with Bauer Media.

The crews were taken to various locations on and around the lake to take footage of our key attractions including watersports, wildlife, Lakes Entrance Fisherman's Co-Op (LEFCOL), The Boathouse Restaurant, Riviera Ice Cream, Eco-Tourism (Sea-Safari Eco Tours & Water Taxi), Riviera Nautic sailing, and mountain biking. 

The photographs were used in Trade-A-Boat magazine, and are owned jointly by DGL and EGMI to use ongoing for promotional purposes.

The video footage was edited to create a 3 minute Gippsland Lakes promo video that EGMI has used across social media and will do at relevant trade shows. In addition, the footage will contribute to two x one hour Australia’s Greatest Boat episodes on Foxtel community channel, Aurora.
