The glory of the Gippland region is evident everywhere you look. The resplendent surroundings showcase some of the most distinctive and divergent landscapes in all of Australia. With some of the most gorgeous holiday accommodation amidst the mysterious and romantic rainforests, the rustic holiday cabins tucked away in the un touched wilderness, the simply breathtaking beachfront holiday cottages perched along white sandy beaches and sparkling sapphire waters, and the chance for the entire family to experience the joys of Australian farm life, with some grand old farm house holiday rentals, just waiting to be explored. All these corners of Gippsland are easily accessible by the huge highway that runs directly through the middle of Gippland, making day trips into the country and easy possibility.

Things to See and Do

Outdoor enthusiasts are absolutely spoilt for choice here, and no matter what your budget, all the weather, you will be guaranteed to experience something spectacular.

One of the most infamous National Parks in the area, Wilson’s Promontory, is a secluded region of cliffs and bluffs that has truly exclusive inhabitants, such as the unbelievable geological sights and unique collection of flora and fauna. Huge arrays of animals that are native to the area live here, including birds and reptiles. Take a guided tour through the thick of the natural forests along the coast line; discover hidden coves for camping and sparkling crystal clear blue waters for swimming.

Phillip Island is the perfect spot for a few nights to visit or even a quick day trip through the area. They have a huge variety of excellent holiday rentals, holiday apartments and holiday homes all along the island and some of the world class ecological attractions have earned themselves armfuls full of awards. One of the biggest attractions that continues to bring visitors to the area is the hugely popular, Penguin Parade. Every day, as the sun sets over the bay, the Penguins all make their way down to the beach on their way to their nests, where they will settle in for the night. It’s a quaint ritual, as all the Penguins appear to march along in an orderly fashion.

For all those wine connoisseurs, the Gippsland Wine Zone is a bustling hub, stretching all the way from Phillip Island, right the way to New South Wales. The unique and individual vineyards all make their very own specific blends that differ with season, and they turn out a beautiful seasonal vintage every year. Each winery has their own style and flair and from boutique wines to award winning bouquets, even the beginner wine lover, will fall in love here.

Industrial Tourism is another unique facet to this region. With forestry, agriculture, gas and coal mining, and heavy power generation, this area is so uniquely diverse, and there is no other like it anywhere in the world. The Industrial Tourism Body, Power Works, will take you on a tour like no other, such as through the Latrobe Valley coal mines, or the largest pulp and paper mill in Australia, or even a look around a working power station. And the allure doesn’t end there, you can even tour the industrial sites, which gives visitors and entirely other perspective, by seeing the buildings, factories and power stations all lit up in a surreal and eerie backdrop. Definitely something for the entire family and not to be missed, so drag the grumpy teenagers away from the holiday rental and show them something that will amaze them.

Gippsland Climate

The mild, although, fairly humid climate of Gippsland, bring temperatures of around 24 C / 75 F in January, to a very temperate 15 C / 59 F during July and the rest of the winter months up until October. Rainfall and temperatures vary, depending how far into the mountain ranges you go, and how far away from the coast you go. Up in the highlands, for instance, winter temperatures drop to as low as -4 C/ 35 F with plenty of snow, which completely isolate some of the areas of the highlands between the long winter months of June and October.

Getting there from the UK

Fly into Melbourne, as it is the closest international airport to the Gippsland region. Pick up a rental car and drive just over 200km to get to the region. The gorgeous and picturesque route, will take you directly to your holiday villa, holiday rental or self catering holiday apartment. All major airlines have a daily link to Melbourne, Australia, so you can shop around for the best prices.

Our host Lisa was easy to deal with and professional, polite. We arrived early hours of the morning (0300) but Lisa had arranged for family to get access to the accommodation and stock the fridge with essentials, make up the beds etc which was a huge help. Lisa also left a bottle of wine for us which was a nice touch! The accommodation was a good size, 3 bedrooms, one of which could sleep four children so we were more than comfortable. Two living rooms provided space for adults and kids to relax and there was a good selection of DVDs, games and access to Wi-Fi. The accommodation is 5 minutes from the high street and the sea fronts/local beaches which was really handy and meant we dint need to rely on a car. The only negative point was the fact the barbecue hadn't been cleaned prior to our arrival so we avoided using it; this wasn't a major issue and we informed Lisa as soon as we noticed it. All in all we had a great holiday visiting family in Inverloch; the property is great for a family although I would say it is expensive in comparison to other properties in the area, especially off peak, when we took our vacation. I would recommend the property and would consider staying there again, subject to affordability. Best Regards, Mr and Mrs A Hodgson
