Description

The Orbost Visitor Information Centre is situated in Forest Park on Nicholson Street. The centre is housed in the historic Slab Hut. The hut was an original family dwelling built in 1872, on a site approximately three kilometres upstream from the junction of the Buchan and Snowy Rivers.

Come and browse through the large array of tourist information, maps, books on the area, locally made goods and trinkets, while you enjoy the open fire in winter and the natural coolness in summer.

Be greeted by the resident geese as you stroll through the lovely cottage garden, where bellbirds are in abundance. Relax with a picnic or barbecue in Forest Park, while the children enjoy the playground. An added interest are the Tourist maps, mosaic path, walking tracks and flood marker, all are fine examples of the local talent.

The Visitor Information Centre is partly funded by the East Gippsland Shire and supports one part time Manager and a wonderful team of dedicated volunteers.
