When travelling to this small, quaint village set between Traralgon and Sale on the banks of the Latrobe River in Central Gippsland, you'll be visiting the lands of the Gunaikurnai People. Rosedale places a premium on the kinds of cafes, local produce purveyors and vintage shops you're usually likely to see much closer to Melbourne.
Find a holiday read in an eclectic bookstore, fossick through bric-a-brac collections or discover pottery and sculptures made by local artists.
Get a sense of local history by completing the Heritage Walk from Willow Park Reserve, or taking in highlights like the Mechanics Institute and St Mark's Church. Head further afield, exploring the lush scenery, historic features and old homesteads that dot the surrounding countryside.
Take some fragrant time out in the Victorian Rose Gardens, and take a snap of the life-size statue of racehorse Patrobus.
Your walk around town may take longer than anticipated, with unscheduled stops in the intriguing shopfronts and frequent sampling of the tantalising treats and excellent coffee in the local bakery, or the award-winning Cafe 3847.
