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.

Inside The Nursery Hot House

This photo was taken inside the greenhouse at the Narkabundah Native Plant Nursery in Sandy Point on the far eastern coast of South Gippsland.

It shows the delightfully colourful array of potted Australian Wild Flowers, this wholesale business supplies right around the country. The metal trolley in the centre of the pathway adds a focal point and combines well with the straight rows of red kangaroo paw in the background.

The Funny Guard Dog

When I went to take photographs for the Narkabunday Native Plant Nursery at one of South Gippslands beautiful coastal towns called Sandy Point, I just had to laugh … Their guard dog was way too friendly!

Here is one of the silly looks he gave me as I was moving around him to capture pictures from a few different angles … what a hoot!

Artist Exhibition Stockyard Gallery Foster

marilyn  ardley exhibition

One of our local South Gippsland artists Marilyn Ardley, created a community theme based exhibition which was held at the Stockyard Gallery in Foster.

I thought it was such a fabulous idea to have pictures of local people placed creatively on display along with a comment from each one. This unique concept brought many visitors from the surrounding towns like Foster, Meeniyan, Fish Creek, Sandy Point, Welshpool and others.

The photograph above is of Winsome from the Meeniyan Art Gallery who happily browsed through the interesting displays on opening night.
