Major rural centre in the East Gippsland Coast

The attractive rural centre of Bairnsdale is located 280 km east of Melbourne via the Princes Highway. Only 14 metres above sea level it is one of the principal towns of Eastern Gippsland and is used as a base by people wishing to explore the rich natural charms of the region. It offers ready access to the lakes in the south; the mountains, streams, caves, snowfields and national parks to the north; the pastoral plains of the west, and the picturesque coastline of the south-east. As well as these obvious tourist attractions the region around Bairnsdale is a centre for grazing, wool, dairying, timber and fishing which are the other principal industries of Bairnsdale today.

    Rosie, you always present the most interesting, kind of out-of-the way places that I enjoy reading about. Thanks.
