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.

Welcome with open arms to our playground of natural serenity, abundances of coastal villages, high country activities and a chilled out vibe. East Gippsland is a magical area of Earth that is so much more than a spot on the map. So come and explore.

Whether you want indulgence, heritage, outdoor activities, nature, touring, arts and culture or dining, East Gippsland has it all. From the unique ecosystems found in Australia’s Coastal Wilderness, to the spectacular majesty of rugged mountains threaded through by the Great Alpine Road and the vast array of waterways that make up the Gippsland Lakes, East Gippsland’s regions offer enough variety to meet your every desire.

Discover the adventure, legend and romance of the Snowy River Country along the river’s edge or in the rugged high country around McKillops Bridge, visit the honeycomb labyrinth of the Buchan Caves or enjoy hospitality along the East Gippsland Drink Trail. Take a boat across one of the two East Gippsland Lakes – Lake King or Lake Victoria – or stretch your toes in the golden sand of the Ninety Mile Beach, a stretch of long sandy dunes that separates the lakes from Bass Strait between Port Albert and Lakes Entrance.
