Wellington Shire

The middle of everywhere

About Destination

Lately, many of us have been dreaming of a simpler lifestyle, with wide open spaces and no traffic jams. In The Middle of Everywhere, we live that enviable lifestyle every day.

Just 2.5 hours East of Melbourne, you’ll find some of Victoria’s finest offerings – from scenic mountain ranges, pristine beaches, beautiful wetlands, temperate rainforests and many other beautiful places, the best of nature is right at your fingertips in the heart of Gippsland. Take a stroll along Ninety Mile Beach, explore the many wonders of the Alpine National Park and wind down in the Gippsland Lake Coastal Park. We don’t call it 'The Middle of Everywhere' for nothing.

Home to a range of tight-knit communities such as Maffra, Stratford and Yarram, you’ll quickly find yourself right at home with the wonderful people that make these towns so special. From our lively restaurant and café culture to the very best in local produce, you’ll never be short of Sunday brunch ideas and places to try!
