Introducing Gippsland & Wilsons Promontory
Gippsland sprawls across the southeastern corner of Australia and is packed full of national parks, lakes, deserted coastline and some of the most diverse wilderness, scenery and wildlife on the continent. The western part is divided into the Latrobe Valley, a coal-mining and electricity-generating centre, and South Gippsland, which includes the beautiful Wilsons Promontory National Park. East Gippsland, backed by the wild forests of the Great Dividing Range, includes the Lakes District and the Wilderness Coast.
