Places To Go And Things To See And Do
There are probably as many beautiful places to visit in Gippsland, both inland and along the Victorian and N.S.W Coastline as anywhere in the world. The South Gippsland region of Victoria in particular, offers some of the most unique and interesting sights in Australia. Below you’ll find a short list of the most popular places to visit.

Serene and peaceful native ferns thrive among the rainforest vegetation in many Eastern Victoria areas, but none more beautiful than in Victoria’s Gippsland region. You will find the Tarra Bulga National Park only a short scenic drive from Yarram. It can be cool, foggy and wet in the winter months so best to check the weather and enjoy the most of the many walking tracks this National Park has to offer.
Agnes Falls Tallest Waterfall In Victoria
The tallest waterfall in Victoria cascades down a picturesque gorge near Agnes, and makes a cool place to stop on a hot sunny day. Make sure you take a trip after a big rainfall and enjoy the spectacular show it puts on. Agnes Falls lookout is only a short stroll from the car park and there are sturdy picnic benches and toilet facilities under the shady trees beside the river.
The Ninety Mile Beach
One of the most beautiful parts of the east coast of Australia begins in the South at Woodside beach, with safe swimming and very nice to go boating, sailing, cruising or fishing from the many boat ramps available in the area. Lifeguards patrol the peaceful beaches over the warmer months and the sand is always clean and white. Make sure you bring food and water as the facilities can be sometimes limited.
