East Gippsland

About Destination

“Coastal getaway on your mind? Fishing on the Snowy more your thing? Or perhaps driving the iconic Great Alpine Road? Mountain bike adventure or perhaps boating on the Gippsland Lakes?.... Where will you start your East Gippsland holiday?

East Gippsland is all about fun, with high calibre MTB parks, stand up paddle board and kayak tours and endless lakes to go waterskiing. Don't forget, we're also only a couple of hours from the snow!

From the rainforest of the Den of Nargun in the west to the huge coastal sand dunes of Point Hicks in the east to the ancient limestone caves of Buchan - there's just so much to discover. East Gippsland is known for our icons! 90 miles of beach, limestone caves that are thousands of years old and our gorgeous koalas of Raymond Island, to name a few…
