Leongatha

Leongatha - Gippsland - Victoria

Nestled in the foothills of South Gippsland's Strzelecki Ranges the flourishing town of Leongatha is considered to be the commercial centre of this region. This gorgeous country town is the perfect base from which to explore Gippsland destinations and attractions all within an hours drive from the town. The Great Southern Rail Trail weaves its way from Leongatha along a 50 kilometre trail to Foster, where forests were cleared for cattle grazing back in 1892, increasing development of rich dairy farms. This major dairy district is home to the largest co-operative dairy in the southern hemisphere.

Visitors can wander the towns streets and encounter the Historical Society Museum, Leongatha Gallery and shops flaunting the fascinating arts and crafts created in the region. Visit nearby eco-friendly town, Koonwarra, located between Leongatha and Meeniyan, priding itself on sustainable living. Australia regards Bass Phillip's first class Pinot Noir as Australia's greatest.
