Located along the banks of the magnificent Mitchell River, Bairnsdale forms the gateway to all the wonders of the Lakes and Wilderness region. A leisurely three hour drive east of Melbourne, it is the administrative centre for the East Gippsland Shire, and provides easy access to the Gippsland Lakes, beaches, rivers, forests and mountains – a nature lovers’ paradise!
But wait – there’s more! A further two hour drive along the Great Alpine Road will find you amongst the snowfields of Dinner Plain and Mount Hotham – absolutely glorious during snow season, but also just as magnificent throughout the rest of the year.
East Gippsland is the ideal destination for lovers of fishing, boating, surfing, camping and numerous other outdoor activities, whilst food and wine enthusiasts can graze their way along the various eateries, wineries, breweries and regular markets.
