Overview

Wildlife

Go on a journey through the unspoilt Gippsland wilderness and discover a rich and diverse array of wildlife. Offering everything from abundant birdlife, kangaroos and emus to seals, dolphins and wombats, Gippsland is a paradise for nature-lovers. 

'The Prom'

Head south down the C444 to Wilsons Promontory National Park for a weekend of camping or a scenic day trip. Walk the trails and see a wide range of native wildlife including rosellas, wombats, emus and kangaroos in this particularly important wildlife refuge.

Birdwatching

Take a trip to central Gippsland, just east of Sale, and wander along elevated boardwalks stretching over the wetlands. Get a glimpse of a wide range of migratory birds, swans, herons, egrets, and black spoonbills.

On the water

Slow down amidst the gentle waters and undisturbed islands of Gippsland Lakes, one of the best places to view wildlife in the region. Watch the local pelicans on the water and then check out Raymond Island, home to Victoria’s largest koala population. Got a spare day? Enjoy some island-hopping on a local cruise and watch the seals and dolphins at play.

The eastern wilderness

Discover the vast and isolated wilderness of East Gippsland at Croajingolong National Park, a UNESCO nominated world biosphere reserve. Walk through rugged coastal hinterland and on down to lush rainforests and pristine beaches. Take in the abundant birdlife, watch for whales out at sea, and visit the nearby Point Hicks Marine National Park.
