Post Bushfires There’s Still Plenty on Offer in East Gippsland

January 17, 2020 Destination South Pacific & Oceania No Comments Email Email

There is no denying January has been tough for the residents and tourism operators of East Gippsland. Many natural forests, animals, homes and livestock in the north and far east of Gippsland have been lost in the terrible bushfires these past few weeks.

However, much of Gippsland has not been directly impacted with attractions and tourism businesses open and ready to welcome visitors.
Most natural attractions in East and Central Gippsland remain untouched and the region is now experiencing idyllic summer beach weather great for families, friend, short stays and extended breaks.

The ever-popular Gippsland Lakes – including Lakes Entrance, Loch Sport, Paynesville and Metung have plenty of accommodation availability now and in weeks and months to come.

The beach at Marlo, the Raymond Island koalas, 90 mile beach, the township of Bairnsdale and the Snowy River estuary at Marlo are all safe to visit now and into the future.

“East and Central Gippsland tourism businesses have been hit hard by the effects of the bushfires,” says CEO of Destination Gippsland Terry Robinson.

“We would like to put Gippsland, particularly East Gippsland at the top of minds for travellers looking for a holiday for the remainder of summer and into autumn and winter,” Mr Robinson said.

“This week we launched our ‘Show your Love for East Gippsland’ campaign offering ways for people to find information about coming back to East Gippsland at .

“We want people to make a promise to plan, travel and visit us in East Gippsland to help our many tourism operators get back on their feet and this new online resource will help people do just that.”

Many tourism businesses in East and Central Gippsland rely heavily on visitation during the summer months to carry their business over the leaner months of winter.It is so important, now more than ever, that people commit to businesses, towns and villages that they know, love and trust and book now for future weekends away and holidays in 2020.
