Yarram Golf Club Green

I dropped in to the friendly Yarram Golf Club during the course of my work day and was enchanted by its atmosphere. Not being a golfer myself, I can only comment about the aesthetic appeal and the hospitality of the clubs committee members.

A couple of golf enthusiasts from Melbourne were saying that the greens were the best they had seen, and on a quick tour myself, even I was impressed. Yarram has suffered several years of low rainfall (some might even call it a drought), but the course was in immaculate condition.

The Club is really keen to have new people come along and they certainly provide an affordable membership and pleasant facilities. They can also cater for groups of almost any size, in a relaxed environment, where queues are a rarity.

Most days you’ll be able to see native Australian wildlife in the form of kangaroos, koalas and native bird species in this delightful, natural bushland setting. No wonder it was rated among the ten best golf courses in Australia.

Old Shed At Coal Creek

It’s been a few years now since they made the entry fee to Coal Creek FREE so I’ve been back on a family outing, as a group of photographers and just by myself to see this interesting place on the South Gippsland Highway on the eastern side of Korrumburra.

This is a picture taken from inside one of the old sheds on the several hectare property that holds a large array of heritage listed buildings, old machinery, relics and really interesting pieces of our Australian country history.

WELL WORTH A VISIT over the school holidays to ride the train, have a picnic on the lawn, watch the ducks swim on the dam, feed the friendly geese or have a coffee and cake in the cafe. They also sell a lovely range of souvenirs both at the front information centre and inside one of the old shops as you venture futher in.

Small Boat On The Water

Perhaps you’ll want to go fishing or sailing or cruising or boating in a larger craft than this little dinghy, but getting out on the water is so much fun, any how and at any time of the year in South Gippsland.

This craft took off from Port Franklin and traveled through the calm, scenic and protected waters of Corner Inlet, taking in magnificent views of Yanakie and Wilsons Promontory National Park.
