Snowfields and beaches within easy reach
No other part of Victoria offers the sheer variety of natural attractions including unspoilt beaches, pristine rainforests, virgin snowfields, hiking and riding trails, food, wine and clean, fresh air, all within comfortable driving distance – wherever you live in Gippsland.
Year-round festivals and celebrations make Gippsland a stimulating and exciting place for all ages.
Gippsland is resource-rich and its coal and gas reserves supply nearly all Victoria's energy requirements and provide substantial employment.

Dairy, beef, horticulture, fisheries and timber have downstream processing in numerous locations.
Other employment sectors include:
- professional services
