Head east to this naturally magic corner of Victoria
A large triangle of some 21,000 square kilometres, East Gippsland Shire is Victoria’s eastern-most region, and one of its most spectacular.
Home to the towns of Bairnsdale, Lakes Entrance, Orbost, Omeo, Mallacoota, Metung and Paynesville, East Gippsland Shire boasts nine national parks and two significant marine parks. Its credentials as a natural playground are compelling, with a temperate climate, Australia’s largest navigable inland lake system, and extensive coastline of stunning beauty.
The strong local economy is driven by food manufacturing, agriculture, fishing, healthcare, construction and tourism, while schools and health care facilities provide excellent choice and service throughout the region.
Ideal for a tree-change, perfect for a sea-change, East Gippsland Shire invites you to become a part of its unique and inspiring community.
