Croajingolong National Park

Croajingolong National Park sweeps along the far south-east corner of the Victorian coast, just south of the New South Wales border. Named after the Aboriginal people of the area, the park is a haven for campers, hikers and fishermen with its remote, sandy beaches, rocky coastal headlands and granite peaks, rambling heathland, lush rainforests, towering eucalypts and vast inland sand dunes. Undoubtedly one of Australia's most spectacular parks, Croajingolong's landscapes and ecosystems are so valuable that the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO) has designated it as a World Biosphere Reserve. Croajingolong National Park is great for hiking and walking, water sports such as surfing and freshwater fishing, swimming, diving, snorkeling and sea kayaking, and for touring by 4WD or mountain bikes. It is also a photographer's paradise with countless opportunities to capture images of untouched nature. Croajingalong National Park is located approximately 450 kms east of Melbourne and 500kms south of Sydney in far East Gippsland. The best way to get there from Melbourne is via the Princes freeway all the way to Cann River. To reach the Point Hicks Lightstation and the Thurra River sand dunes, turn right down Tamboon Road for 16km, continue 5.1km on Cape Everard Road, turn left onto Old Everard Road and drive 14.5km to Thurra River. The last 40 minutes of this drive are on a dirt road.

Nyerimilang Heritage Park

Friends of Nyerimilang shop at the park entrance. The semi-formal gardens and lawns surrounding the homestead contain an interesting collection of exotic and native species. Majestic Gippsland Blue Gums and Coast Grey Box on the cliff tops contrast with marshland in the valley of Maringa Creek. Nyerimilang attracts many species of birds including honeyeaters, black swans, pelicans and birds of prey. There are three bird hides in the park. Princes Highway via the Kalimna West Road. There are plenty of road signs along the way. Nyerimilang is just 10km by road north-west of Lakes Entrance.
