A nature lover's delight, Gippsland boasts an abundance of national parks, beautiful coastline, mountains and lakes. With climate change threatening the physical environment, visitors can take a sustainable Gippsland holiday to both enjoy and help conserve the stunning pristine landscape.
Take a hike
Walk your way to carbon reduction on one of Gippsland's iconic walks. Gippsland offers many walks through diverse landscapes, from leisurely afternoon strolls to overnight adventures. Stroll through ancient rainforest in Tarra Bulga National Park, explore the white sandy beaches of Cape Conrad, hike your way along the Wilderness Coast or take your pick from the many trails of Wilsons Promontory National Park.
Get back to basics and enjoy a camping holiday in the region's pristine wilderness, or pitch a tent near friendly coastal towns. Stay in a forest park, choose a holiday site with full facilities or take the strain off at a glampsite or wilderness retreat. Let nature be your entertainment with plentiful walking tracks, rail trails and beaches.
