Overview

Nature & wildlife

Home to iconic wildlife including kookaburras, koalas, dolphins, kangaroos and wombats, Gippsland is also blessed with some of the most diverse natural landscapes in the world. From snow-capped mountains, rolling green hills and temperate rainforest to white beaches, winding waterways and rugged coastlines, Victoria's eastern region is a wonderland for nature lovers.

Take your time and savour the best of Gippsland’s natural wonders on two feet. Walk under giant ferns in ancient rainforests, stand under magnificent waterfalls, and look out over the ocean from wind-swept beaches and cliff tops.

The Prom

Travel to Victoria's beloved Wilsons Promontory to discover secluded beaches and coastal forests set against the backdrop of the park's granite mountains. Take a stroll and look out for native birds as well as kangaroos, emus, wombats and echidnas.

White sand and waterways

Walk along the endless expanse of Ninety Mile Beach and then take a cruise around the Gippsland Lakes, the largest and most beautiful network of inland waterways in Australia. Check out the koalas on Raymond Island and then travel east to the sandy beaches, rocky coastal headlands and rainforests of Croajingolong National Park, a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve.

Up on high

Plot a course to central Gippsland to find some of Victoria's most striking landscapes, from the towering mountain ash forests in the Strzelecki Ranges to the granite peaks of Mt Baw Baw and temperate rainforest of Tarra Bulga National Park.
