    Pocket Guide: Gippsland

    Wot about a break in one ofVictoria's most diverse regions with beautiful scenery, great food and plenty to see and do? When you stay in one of our Gippsland hotels, you'll be in easy reach of skiing, walking, wining, dining and fishing spots.


    Between the 1860s and 1880s, Gippsland was a gold mining region and then between the 1870s and 1920s, it became a coal mining area. You can learn more about the gold rush on the Walhalla Goldfields Railway or brush up your knowledge of the "black gold" mining days by visiting the Coal Creek Community Park and the State Coal Mine.

    History buffs will also enjoy Old Gippstown in Moe, which is a heritage park dedicated to keeping the region's nostalgic spirit alive. The buildings and artefacts throughout the town date back to the 1850s and there are a few museums to wander around too. There's even a market on the third Saturday of the month, where you can pick up fresh produce, arts and crafts.

    Things to do

    Gippsland is a huge region and it packs a lot in. There's everything from the Penguin Parade on Phillip Island to thrilling High Country 4WD tours, so make sure you set aside enough time to experience it all.

    Nature lovers will adore the Wilson's Promontory, Cape Conran and Snowy River national parks, as well as the Lyre Bird Walk in Mirboo North and the Uralla Nature Reserve Walk in Trafalgar. Other popular walks and bike rides are along the rail trails, like the Warragul to Drouin Trail, Grand Ridge Rail Trail and the Foster Rail Trail. If you'd prefer to just sit on a train and enjoy the scenery without having to put your legs to work, the Mirboo North to Boolara Rail Trip is also really beautiful.

    Keen to spend some time on the water? Don't miss 90 Mile Beach or the great fishing at Mallacoota, Bemm River and Seaspray. Wot about chilling out on a houseboat for a few days? Look no further than Metung and Lakes Entrance!

    If you're here in winter and you're ready to hit the slopes, Mount Hotham and Mount Baw Baw will not disappoint!

    Those with a critical eye for art will love the art galleries in this region too. Even novices, who just want to wander around inside for a while, will get something out of the galleries in Morwell and Sale, as well as the local artists' studios in the Lakes Entrance area.

    Wining and dining

    Once you've seen all of the art galleries, you can eat your way through Yarragon and Neerim South, which are both well-known for their art and eating spots. Afterwards, head to Traralgon and soak up the cafe culture.

    Fancy a fine drop? Make a beeline for the Narkojee, Wild Dog and Brandy Creek wineries. If beer is more your thing, don't miss the Bruthen Brewery in Bullant or the microbreweries in Grand Ridge and Mirboo North.

    Getting here and around

    Melbourne Airport is the closest airport (about 200km away), so grab one of these cheap flights to Melbourne. From the Melbourne city centre you can catch a train to Gippsland, but some parts of the region aren't covered by public transport, so you might be best off hiring a car at the airport.

    Scenic drives, outdoor activities, cultural attractions, fine wine and gourmet food – wot more could you ask for? Book your flights and Gippsland accommodation with us now!
