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.


A quiet village nestled in the midst of the magnificent Croajingolong National Park, Mallacoota is a perfect place to relax or to stay if you wish to explore the pristine coastal wilderness of East Gippsland.

Offering Victoria’s warmest winter temperatures and cooling summer breezes, Mallacoota is a year-round destination to enjoy walking, fishing, boating, canoeing, cruising, golfing and surfing, or to explore the bush in your 4wd. Home to 300 species of birds, Mallacoota is a popular place for bird-watching and a great place to see Victoria’s fauna in its native habitat.

The extraordinary diversity of landscapes and ecosystems of Croajingolong National Park – pure white sandy beaches, rambling heathlands, rocky coastal headlands, granite peaks, lush rainforests and towering eucalypts – have been recognised by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO), which nominated the park as a World Biosphere Reserve.



Things to do 

One of the best fishing spots in Victoria, you are sure to catch a bag from the shore or boat. You can swim, boat, fish and enjoy the abundance of water. Or feel free to walk and discover the beauty by foot with an array of local walking tracks.

For further information or brochures visit the Mallacoota Visitor Information Centre online or call in at the Mallacoota Service Centre, corner of Alan Drive and Maurice Ave, Mallacoota.
