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 whale of a time

Remember the 200 plus kilometers of coastline we have in East Gippsland? This coastline is also popular for our giant ocean friends who migrate along it each year.  The mesmerizing humpback and southern right whale can often be spotted heading north and south between May and November. So gather your winter woolies and head to the beach in search of a high vantage point to get a glimpse of these beautiful creatures cruising by. Hint: Lake Tyers Beach (particularly the Red Bluff lookout), Point Hicks Lightstation and Bastion Point in Mallacoota are often good bets for sighting the illusive mammals.
