The view in the photo is to the north. Mallacoota in Gippsland has dramatic scenery - One of the most isolated fishing villages and scenic places in Victoria. Surrounded by Croajingolong National Park, the Mallacoota Inlet has views of the mist covered mountains in the distance, islands and vast wilderness areas.
The park extends for some 100 kms along the coast of north east of Victoria, protecting the flora and fauna of the region. Explore rainforests, visit stunning isolated sandy beaches, see shipwrecks, find places to explore and spot rare birdlife and native animals. These are just some of the things to do here.
The park is named after the indigenous people of the region, the Croajingolong.
There are numerous walks here to explore the park, of varying difficulty and length. Along the Wingan Inlet or the Mallacoota Inlet, take in the splendid views of the rainforests, the beaches and the river rapids. There are a number of walks here, either in the forests, on the river or along the coast.
The many lakes, waterways, islands, beaches, surrounding green forests and hinterlands are waiting to be explored at your leisure. There are some excellent cruises of the wilderness areas on offer, or you can hire a boat for your own fishing expedition or exploration of the many waterways.
