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.

 “Look, Dolphins!”

Did you know that East Gippsland is home to the endangered Burrunan dolphin?  Found in only two locations Australia wide, the pods are often seen playing around the Lakes system. Living in our Lakes, the dolphins have been widely researched and have made themselves quite popular with animal lovers and photographers. To see these amazing mammals in their natural environment, book a cruise on the lakes. If you are landlocked, you can often see the dolphins playing from Bullock Island, along the Nyerimilang walk or from the Metung boardwalk. You will be mesmerized by their magic.
