About GippslandOccupying Victoria's eastern corner, Gippsland covers a vast and diverse landscape ranging from unspoilt beaches to enormous lakes and mountain ranges. Wilsons Promontory is renowned for its stunning bush, coastal scenery and acclaimed walking trails. Central Gippsland is gourmet country, dotted with wineries, cheesemakers, farmers' markets, and fruit & 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. The Gippsland Lakes are fed by the waters of five major rivers and fringed by Ninety Mile Beach providing great 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. And be sure to visit Croajingolong National Park, a World Biosphere Reserve.
