HOW TO GET TO SOUTH GIPPSLAND?

Visitors usually find it most convenient to drive, cycle or ride motorbikes though #SouthGippsland, being within 1 to 3 hours drive of Melbourne making day or weekend trips really easy. Take either the South Gippsland Highway through the center of the region, the Princes Freeway to the north or the Bass Coast Highway in the south.

Public Transport - Regular bus services operate several times a day through most of the coastal towns and along the South Gippsland Highway to and from Melbourne. A ferry has been known to depart from Port Welshpool, sailing tours operate from Port Albert during warmer months and the Tourist Railway runs from Korumburra, Nyora to Leongatha and return.

Several surfers were able to get right next to the whales at WARATAH BAY. I was offered a boat ride to venture a little closer … and an almighty adventure it turned out to be as a large wave tipped the boat sideways and drenched the occupants. My expensive camera was saved amidst some shocked faces followed by laughter and relief. What great fun it was! Enjoy the photos.

Bush fires ARE good for the land as these before and after pictures of the amazing regenerating foliage show. Even though 50% of The Prom was burned out in 2009, when I visited to take photos 6 weeks after and 6 months after, even I was astounded at how well and how beautifully the native bushland, grasslands and ferns were regrowing AND how much the native wildlife was thriving.

A friend of mine who lived at Tidal River and was also part of the wildlife conservation team told me that they found no evidence whatsoever of dead or injured wildlife after thee fires ... nature adapts, it's our vehicles that cause the most damage.

You will love these stunning panoramas from Wilson's Promontory National park. From sunset skies, grasslands, bushland regeneration after the bush fires, wildlife and plants to heavenly lights shining down from the clouds.

The Best Sailing Boat, a luxury 50 ft catamaran, makes Port Albert its home during November to June each year and provides a variety of cruise options and tours to suit all budgets. Experience the sights and colourful sunsets of Port Albert on a warm summer evening or take a tour through the environmentally protected waters of Corner Inlet Marine Park. This delightful sailing vessel was built for the Bass Straight and Southern Waters sea conditions, so is extremely safe and comfortable. Guests can be assured they will be in safe hands with the captain, who has nearly 50 years of at-sea experience.

Looking up into the canopy of a tree displaying beautiful new regrowth after bushfires ravaged areas very close to the Mirboo North township in Feb 2009.
