Gippsland Australia Where We Live
The Gippsland region of Victoria Australia stretches from the far outer edges of Melbourne’s eastern suburbs to the New South Wales Border. Gippsland is broken up into four regions East Gippsland, West Gippsland, South Gippsland and Latrobe Valley. Gippsland tourist attractions are plenty in a region this size.
The extensive region of Gippsland is characterised by its diversity of landscapes and features. Gippsland is blessed with kilometres of untouched pristine coastline, wilderness regions, rivers, mountains, snowfields and the Gippsland lakes system.
Some of Gippsland tourist attractions include Wilsons Promontory National Park in South Gippsland. Wilsons Promontory is the southernmost point of Australia. Wilsons Promontory is known for its flora and fauna that sits in the show of its dominating granite peaks. Wilsons Promontory is an ideal destination for camping at the many campgrounds and caravan parks in the region. We have camped their many times.
In East Gippsland where we live, you will find the 90 Mile Beach known for its shark fishing in the Seaspray area and its beach holiday town of Lakes Entrance. The Gippsland lakes which stretch from Sale to Lakes Entrance is the largest inland waterway in Australia. East Gippsland has over 1 million hectares of public land ideal for bushwalking, mountain biking, boating, fishing and camping.
The mountain region of Gippsland is home to Walhalla an old mining town restored to its colonial glory, Dargo the most remote township in Victoria and Licola the only privately owned town in Australia. The snow fields take in Dinner Plain and Mount Hotham ski resorts. As we mentioned Gippsland tourist attractions are far and wide.
Wine and wineries are a burgeoning industry in the Gippsland region for cool climate grape varieties, producing great quality red wines. Vineyards are located all over with many selling food and Wine. On weekends, you will often find live music at many of the Gippsland vineyards.
