East Gippsland walks

Breathtaking East Gippsland boasts rugged alpine and coastal landscapes, some of Australia's most renowned old-growth forests and the country's largest lake system.

With nine national parks, it's a bush walker's paradise and you can indulge all of your senses with fresh food, local wine, history, legends and culture.

In the High Country mountains you can create your own adventures, including forest walks, white water rafting, horse riding, mountain biking, four-wheel driving and fishing in clear mountain streams.

It's also the boating capital with charming villages on the water and plenty of shady spots to fish, or you can drop a line from a jetty, buy fresh from a boat or take your own boat trip to Ninety Mile Beach.
