East Gippsland acknowledges the Gunaikurnai, Monero and the Bidawel people as the Traditional Custodians of the land that encompasses East Gippsland Shire. We pay our respects to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people living in East Gippsland, their Elders past and present.


One of East Gippsland premier fishing destinations, Bemm River has recently become a favourite with bird-watchers, bushwalkers and eco tourists, who appreciate its natural beauty and prevalent wildlife. Located around 450 kilometres from Melbourne along the Princes Highway, the town sits on the far eastern fringe of the Cape Conran Coastal Park. The river itself winds down from the mountains and is fed by the Errinundra River, McKenzie River and Combienbar River, as well as many creeks and streams, before meeting the ocean at Sydenham Inlet.

The town is nestled between the river, the inlet and the sea. Bemm River has a hotel, a shop and a caravan park. No petrol is sold in Bemm River so make sure you have plenty of fuel in your car and your boat.
