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.

The Bridge At Pearl Park

At the northern end of Main Street Foster is Pearl Park, which was featured in the ABC TV series Bed Of Roses, and as this picture shows with it’s interesting bridge, water lilies and gently running stream, it’s beautiful as well.

There’s a good selection of accommodation choices when visiting the area, with a local backpackers lodge, quality bed and breakfast retreats, beautiful honeymoon getaways, cheap pub rooms and farm stays.

Foster is a large town conveniently situated close to Wilsons Prom, Yanakie, Walkerville, Waratah Bay, Meeniyan, Port Franklin, Welshpool, Port Welshpool and Inverloch. Find out more on the South Gippsland Website.

Accomodation Near Wilsons Prom

Coming up to holiday season and I receive so many calls asking for advice on where is a good place to stay close to Wilsons Prom National Park. Well, after living in Foster for a few years, I found it to be incredibly convenient place for buying groceries, getting fuel, cafes, beauty salons and other comforts associated with taking life easier.

Then there’s Yanakie, right on the very edge of the park with some boutique style cottages, cheaper priced cabins and of course a couple caravan parks that are usually booked out well in advance.

Waratah Bay is convenient too. Great for fishing and camping and well away from the hustle and bustle of the larger towns.

This Sunset taken from the rocks at Yanakie, looking out towards Port Franklin, shows just how beautiful this place can really be.
