Natural wonders of Gippsland

Stretching from outer Melbourne to the eastern-most point of Victoria, Gippsland boasts mile upon mile of unspoilt beaches, vast pristine rainforests, vibrant communities and seemingly endless rolling green pastures.

Gippsland is also home to Victoria’s natural resources and commodities economy. The region powers Victoria’s electricity industry and key industry sectors such as agriculture, forestry, dairy, fishing, tourism, engineering, finance, health care and education are flourishing.

The Victorian Government is ensuring Gippsland communities continue to be great places to live, work and invest, by delivering a range of improvements to public transport, country roads, tourism infrastructure and health facilities, and through initiatives such as Free TAFE for priority courses.

The Victorian Budget 2022/23 provides $5.7 billion for regional initiatives, taking the Government’s total investment in regional Victoria to more than $36 billion since 2015.

Locals will also benefit from planned upgrades for the Latrobe Regional Hospital, upgrades to Bairnsdale Secondary College and free public wifi in Latrobe Valley communities. The Government is also investing in a new coastal park for the Bass Coast and planning for a new plan a Sea to Summit hiking trail and associated park infrastructure upgrades in East Gippsland.
