Getting there & away
The two major routes are the Princes Hwy/M1 and the South Gippsland Hwy. Many places of interest, such as Mallacoota, Marlo, Cape Conran and Bemm River, are off the Princes Hwy.
Most minor roads are unsealed and some roads in state parks are closed during the wetter winter months. Check road conditions and seasonal closures with Parks Victoria (13 19 63; www.parkweb.vic.gov.au) and keep an eye out for logging trucks.
Bairnsdale is the end of the V/Line train link from Melbourne. Daily services from Melbourne to Bairnsdale ($44, 3½ hours) stop at all major towns along the Princes Hwy.
