There are a lot of long and straight things in Australia: a 145-km stretch of road without a turning, a 478-km stretch of dead-straight railway track — the longest in the world, and the world’s longest dog fence at over 5,600 km. The Ninety Mile Beach in Victoria, is likewise, one of the longest uninterrupted beaches in the world.

The beach lies in the Gippsland region on Victoria's south-eastern coastline, and runs for 151 kilometers (94 miles) from a spit near Port Albert to the man-made channel at Lakes Entrance. Behind the beach are long sandy dunes that separates the Gippsland Lakes — the largest inland water system in the Southern Hemisphere — from Bass Strait. Stretching as far as the eye can see it is one of the most natural and unspoilt beaches in the world with no rocky headlands or platforms, just miles and miles of sand.
