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.

Older Style Renovated House

As one of the oldest established communities in South Gippsland, Leongatha is home to a variety of period style houses and historic buildings. The greens and yellows of this house in one of the neat and tidy side streets, blends beautifully with the large tree in front that’s only just holding on to the last of its’ autumn leaves.

The real estate here is reasonably priced and tends to hold its value quite well. Country areas don’t seem to get the extreme fluctuations in price that the fast paced trendy city areas attract. I’ve made a chunk of money investing in the country, but don’t expect great rental returns on residential properties in most locations, instead, the homes I’ve owned and renovated around Foster and Mount Best, increased in value tremendously in only a few years. Very happy about that :-)

The Fabulous Gardens In Leongatha

Whenever I drive through Leongatha along the South Gippsland Highway the first thing I’m always taken with is the beautiful roadside plantings throughout the local area.

Then as I walked along the streets one day with camera in hand, I couldn’t help but be impressed by the neat, and well kept condition of many of the lawns and gardens in the town, mind you, the local shire council offices are situated here, so it makes perfect sense that the amenities and aesthetics of the place are tended to regularly … never-the-less, it is a wonderful sight to see.

Pictures include street scenes, native lilly pilly berries, gum tree pods, wattle blossom, daffodils, pink camelia, red hot poker spike, autumn leaves, eucalypt tree bark, garden pots, a magpie and more.

These lovely photographs of the gardens in Leongatha tell the story much better than I could possibly do with words … enjoy!
