Situated in the heart of Lakes Entrance, Banjo Paterson Motel is located next to Griffiths’ Sea Shell Museum and Marine Display on the main Esplanade road. As the name suggests, the motel is named after Andrew Barton “Banjo” Paterson, the greatest Australian bush poet, who wrote “The Man from Snowy River” and “Clancy of the Overflow”. The two-story motel and onsite Clancy’s restaurant is decorated with comfort & peace in mind with warm natural color and minimal details, featuring the country-themed settings that brings you the rural, natural and peaceful life back in 1880’s. 


Magnificent views of the Cunninghame arm, 90 miles beach and spectacular “Lake Entry Point” are just the beginning of the myriad pleasures you’ll enjoy at Banjo Paterson.
