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.

Base camp for adventure

Sitting between the Lind National Park and the Alfred National Park on the Princes Highway, Cann River is not only the ultimate crossroad but an ultimate base.

Get your adventure in the great outdoors with the Croajingolong National Park, Point Hicks Lighthouse and the ancient rainforests of Victoria's far east. Camp in one of the remote campsites, fish in a multitude of creeks, rivers and inlets, bushwalk in the untouched National parks offering gorges, waterfalls and high peaks, 4WD some hair-raising tracks or snorkel and dive off Point Hicks. 

The town sits along the Melbourne to Sydney Coastal Drive between Orbost and Mallacoota and is the turning point for Canberra, along the Snowy-Monaro Highway. The bustling town offers cafes, a pub, fuel and an impressive playground complete with a skate park.
