Far South East Victoria

The Far South East Coast of Victoria offers spectacular coastal scenery, as well as some fantastic bushland walks. Along the coast through the picturesque Lakes District is the Ninety Mile Beach, which is a great fishing and surfing beach, although can be a bit rough for swimming.

Further along the coastal highway you will reach Bairnsdale. There is an interesting museum about the history of the area, as well as the Krowathun Koolong Keeping Place which tells about the local Aboriginal community. You can also visit the wetland reserve of MacLeod Morass, or head further north to the Mitchell River National Park home to the Nargun who haunts the Den of Nargun.

From Bairnsdale you can either head south along the coastal Princess Highway to Lakes Entrance, or north to Buchan. Continuing along the highway you will reach Orbost. There are a couple of fantastic scenic drives you can take from Orbost. The Baldwin Spencer Trail is a 262km circular route offering spectacular inland and coastal scenery. The Murrungower Forest Drive is 113km and truly beautiful. Just south of Orbost is Marlo, a pretty and relaxing place to stay. There is also a beautiful coastal track to Cape Conran from Marlo, offering fantastic beaches.

Heading north from Orbost is Errinundra National Park, which features wonderful rainforest. The best driving route is along the Errinundra Road which travels through the middle of the park from Club Terrace. If you continue along the Princess Highway you reach Genoa on the Victoria/New South Wales border. Heading south from here you will get to Mallacoota and the Croajingolong National Park. Mallacoota is a wonderful holiday spot, surrounded by spectacular National Park. There are some great river cruises you can take from here, which make a pleasant day out.
