West Gippsland, Victoria
Come and stand in awe under forest giants, or step into a lost world of ancient temperate rainforest equal to any on Earth…yet not hear a sound except the serenade of lyrebirds. Come and walk in solitude through a different rainforest so rare, most people have never heard of it, and far fewer will ever see it.
Come and discover peaceful, beautiful places far from the beaten track, and away from the parks all the tourists visit. And when you need to reacquaint yourself with the comforts of life, try a home cooked meal in a friendly country guest house or a cozy cabin in a tiny, peaceful hamlet amidst all this natural beauty. Come and discover the Grand Strzelecki Track!
