Sale

Sale - Gippsland - Victoria

Sale was granted city status in 1950, having thrived in its gold rush days, the first city in the Gippsland region. The town is located on the Thompson River and nearby the Latrobe River junction with the serious recreational area, Lake Guthridge Parklands, offering walking trails, Sale Botanic Gardens, tennis courts, adventure playground for the kids and Regional Aquatic Complex.

The city of Sale is home to an historic port, where it was once bustling with paddlesteamers back in 1898. Today, the port allows visitors access to the amazing network of the lakes region where it connects up to the ocean at Lakes Entrance. Let your boating adventure begin at the Port of Sale. If you time it right you might be lucky enough to look towards the skis in awe of the marvellous men in their flying machines as the RAAF Roulettes hone in their skills as they practice daredevil manoeuvres above the city. For a closer look at the army's history you can spend some time at the Gippsland Armed Forces Museum and pour over photos, stories and displays detailing Gippsland's military involvement.

Stroll the streets and hang out at the local cafes and restaurants along with a handful of fine art galleries and craft shops. For a touch of history, visitors can admire the grandeur of historical buildings including St Paul's Anglican Cathedral, Our Lady of Sion Convent and the Bicentennial Clock Tower.
