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.
It’s always so nice to see the great turn up of people at the local farmers markets, for the arts and crafts and freshly grown organic produce in so many of the towns in South Gippsland. Places like Foster, Cowes, Coal Creek, Churchill Island, Grantville Inverloch, Jumbunna, Newhaven, Korumburra, Loch, Leongatha, Philip Island, Tarwin Lower, Mirboo North, Wonthaggi and Yarram all seem to have markets on a regular basis.
This particular photo of fresh vegetables, silver-beet, spring onions, sweet potato, beans celery, capsicum, lettuce, pumpkin, was taken at the Organic Produce Market in Koonwarra.
I just love the natural colours, digitally enhanced and artistically inspired photos that were taken of the native bushland, tree ferns, fungi and moss, Mountain Ash, Blackwood and Eucalypt trees, walking tracks, walk bridges and rusted machinery at MOUNT WORTH STATE PARK.
This lovely and peaceful national park can be found North West of Mirboo North.
We’ve sold this album many times over, so people can make stunning art prints for the home, nature collections for websites, images for books, advertisements, brochures for accommodation places and other publications. I’m sure you’ll enjoy them too!
I’m always amazed at how quickly the forest regenerates after bush fires and how it becomes even more beautiful each time. What might seem like devastation to some people is natures way of cleaning the bush, adding much needed minerals to the soil from the ash and creating newer, stronger and better habitat for Australian native animals, creatures and birds.
These forestry logs in Mirboo North lay neatly in piles on the ground while the fires burned, blackened and charred the living tress around them.
