Located in Gippsland's famous dairy country and in the foothills of the Strzelecki Ranges, Leongatha boasts a vibrant town centre surrounded by rolling green pastures.

Dairy industry

Take a trip to this prime dairy district, home to the largest co-operative dairy in the southern hemisphere. Originally settled on cleared forests of the western Strzeleckis, Leongatha and the surrounding countryside were dotted with rich dairy farms from the 1870s onwards. The opening of the South Gippsland Railway in 1892 boosted development as more forests were cleared to make way for cattle grazing.

Natural histories

Experience a wide range of cultural events and festivals at Leongatha throughout the year. The town also boasts numerous shops, galleries and museums devoted to the local arts and crafts of the region.

Head out to the surrounding countryside and discover numerous tracks and trails that offer relaxing walks through undulating and captivating scenery. Leongatha marks the start of the popular Great Southern Rail Trail, which begins just south of the local railway station and winds its way through Fish Creek and Foster to Welshpool in South Gippsland.
