Occupying Victoria’s eastern corner, Gippsland covers a vast and diverse landscape, from unspoilt beaches to vast lakes and mountain ranges. Wilsons Promontory is renowned for its bush and coastal scenery and network of tracks and trails to explore. Central Gippsland is gourmet country, dotted with wineries, cheesemakers, farmers’ markets, and fruit and berry farms. Explore historic gold towns and maritime villages such as Walhalla and Port Albert, or take to the slopes and spend a day skiing at the Mt Baw Baw Alpine Resort, the closest downhill ski area to Melbourne.

Gippsland Lakes are fed by the waters of five major rivers and fringed by the Ninety Mile Beach and provide ample opportunities for swimming, fishing, boating and sailing. Dine al fresco at a lakeside restaurant or pub, have a family picnic by a river, or take a stroll through the waterfront villages of Paynesville, Metung or Lakes Entrance, known widely as the seafood capital of Victoria and where the region’s lakes system meets the sea.

Continue east to Croajingolong National Park, a World Biosphere Reserve. With more than 100 kilometres of pristine coastline and hinterland, it is a great place to go bushwalking, surfing or spotting various species of bird and plant life.

Australia's Best Beaches

Australia has miles and miles of shoreline but which beaches are really great? Ultimately it depends on what you're looking for in a beach. Pristine wilderness without a single footprint in sight, the sparkle of cosmopolitan high rise on the waters edge, the adrenalin pumping roar of a powerful surf beach, or quite simply the perfect white squeaky sand that squelches between your toes.
