Foothill Forests & Valleys
Between the mountains and the coast, Gippsland boasts a large area of foothills of the Great Dividing Range. These small peaks and rolling hills are dissected by some wild river valleys holding many destinations with great nature experiences and historic sites. Hidden secrets that the average tourist won’t find.
Mitchell River National Park is just one of these and protects Victoria’s largest undammed river system. Along with surrounding state forest, it provides a wide range of landscapes along with their wildlife and history. Grand lookouts over the river valley, quiet forests of tall tress or dry woodland and of course a lovely variety of birds and wildlife. This is Gunaikurnai Country and you will learn about their past and current connections to the land. Mitchell River National Park only had very small areas impacted by summer bushfires in 2020 so planned tours in spring will proceed.
