Introducing Gippsland & Wilsons Promontory
The Great Ocean Road may get the crowds, but Gippsland hides all the secrets. Gippsland is one region where it pays to avoid the cities – the towns along the Princes Hwy are barely worth a traveller's glance. Elsewhere are some of the most absorbing, unspoilt and beautiful wilderness areas and beaches in the state.
Along the coast there's Wilsons Promontory National Park, a fabulous destination for hikers and the less energetic among you alike. This is only the start when it comes to stirring beaches. Epic Ninety Mile Beach yields to the Cape Conran Coastal Park and Croajingalong National Park. Put them together and it's one of the wildest, most beautiful coastlines on earth.
Inland, Walhalla is an utterly beguiling village, while the national parks at Snowy River and Errinundra are as deeply forested, remote and pristine as any in the country.
