At the heart of the town sits the Marlo Hotel, perched on the hill, overlooking the estuaries and entrance. The Marlo Hotel, established in 1886, has been operating for over 120 years, offering accommodation, private function areas, good food, cold beverages, clean ocean air and a friendly pub atmosphere.

Your private helicopter flight departs Lake Entrance flying coastal along Ninety Mile Beach and arrives at Marlo Hotel for lunch, a Gippsland iconic destination with views over the Snowy River. Indulge in a 2-course lunch (entree/main or main/dessert) plus two house beverages and tea/coffee. Return to the helicopter to fly coastal along Ninety Mile Beach before turning inland near Lake Tyers and onto the airfield. Optionally, extended the Scenic Flight to include Cape Conran.

Enjoying the Marlo Hotel views over the Snowy River is one of life’s little joys. The dappled golden light playing on the still water of Lake Corringle is broken by the occasional tinnie piloted by a local fisher. You take this in downing an ice-cold beer on the deck of the Marlo Hotel, one of Australia’s best little hotels.

The first settler to occupy the Marlo township area was James Stirling around the year 1875. He built a bark hut on the bluff that had two rooms, bark walls, earthen floors and a shingle roof. By 1884, this structure had expanded to a 9 roomed accommodation house and in 1886 became the Marlo Hotel when a liquor license was granted. After various additions and renovations it is now a sprawling and characterful weatherboard building.
