Breathtakingly beautiful

From rolling green pastures to rugged coastline, and home to Victoria’s most famous island, the Bass Coast, South Gippsland & islands area is one of Victoria’s most stunning regions.

For tens of thousands of years, the Bunurong people used and cultivated the land, water, marine and coastal resources of the Bass Coast, South Gippsland and islands area. They continue to practice and strengthen their culture and care for Country and the Bunurong Land Council Aboriginal Corporation is the Registered Aboriginal Party for the area.

The Bass Coast, South Gippsland & islands area holds some of Victoria’s most valuable natural assets: the National and Marine Parks of French Island, the Phillip Island Nature Parks, 180 km of coasts and Western Port’s Ramsar-listed wetlands. The world-famous Phillip Island Penguin Parade and Nature Park attracts millions of local and international visitors each year.
