Where Is South Gippsland?

South Gippsland is generally referred to as the region found on the south eastern tip of Victoria.

Bordered by Yarram in the north east, Wilsons Promontory National Park, Sandy Point, Foster and Yanakie in the south east, Cape Liptrap Coastal Park, Inverloch, Cape Patterson and Wonthaggi in the south, Philip Island to the west, Korumburra, Mirboo North, Leongatha and almost stretching to include Mount Worth State Park and Tarra Bulga National Park towards the north.

Gippsland itself is often know for its power generators and polluted skies, especially around Churchill, Moe and Morwell. While it might seem obvious that the South Gippsland Shire Council governs the Southern area of Gippsland there is often confusion about where the region actually lies. The map on this page gives an indication of towns that many local people believe it includes.

Organic Product Suppliers

Of all the clients I’ve ever had, this couple, Peter and Maureen who make a large range of Cartified Organic Cotton Products in an out of the way place called Buffalo (between Fish Creek and Meeniyan), would have to be some of the nicest people I’ve ever met.

They already ran a successful and thriving business in South Gippsland before they started selling online, but once their website was up, only after few hours they received their first quite large order directly from their website … in fact it was such a shock, they hadn’t even been told I’d made their website “live” — obviously, their business has blown out of the water since then and more staff and family members were roped in to help with the influx of trade.

But these people love what they do! Their factory has been built on the property. Living organically and chemical free is a way of life for them.

I don’t recommend a website for everyone, in fact most small businesses who only sell from their shops, are much better off to write a list of what they have to offer, and add it to sites that promote specifically to people who either live or intend to visit their local region.

Here is a useful list of ways you can promote your website locally, without needing to spend a cent and with every chance of being more productive than making the effort to get traffic to your own website

Of course, selling online is a large part of our future these days and the businesses that benefit the most, tend to be in the category of travel, tours, camping, caravan parks and accommodation. Statistics show that over 96% of all accommodation is booked online.

Mount Worth State Park

Mount Worth State Park bushland

A friend told me I should visit Mount Worth State Park because she thought it was even nicer to photograph than the beautiful Tarra Bulga National Park.

Well, I was quite blown away on my first visit last week and have taken a huge gallery of beautiful photographs of the native bush at Mount Worth State Park.

I found it by following the signs from Mirboo North and believe it to be well signed from the Korumburra and Warragul directions as well….stunning location, well worth a visit.
