What’s in it for YOU?

1. Say It

Have your say on what happens in Lakes Entrance and what’s important to improve Lakes Entrance infrastructure, tourism, business, events, protecting our environment as well as what gaps exist in our health, education, aged and recreational facilities. Don’t let others control your future, get involved and have your say!


Lakes Entrance needs a strong united voice in advocating to Government, Government Authorieits and to the media. There is strength in numbers! If we don’t come together in large numbers and support each other, we’ll always be relegated to the bottom of the pile.

Still not sure?

Come along to a meeting, all are welcome and then decide – no strings attached.

LEADA Committee meets every month on the first Tuesday at the Central Hotel at 3:30pm.

LEADA’s Business and Tourism Group meets every month on the third Thursday at the Lakes Entrance Bowls Club, 5:45pm for a 6:00pm start.

General meetings for members will be held at least three times per year. Come along and help set LEADA’s priorities. New members are always welcome.
