Once you've had your fill of walks, take a trip to Yarram for the night - where the team at Yarram Holiday Park will be on hand to make sure you have a great stay. Enjoy dinner at the Yarram Commercial Hotel (The Mersh) where you'll be treated with fab local produce and a warm country welcome.
After a restful night at the Yarram Holiday Park, make your way to historic Port Albert, where you can enjoy the Port Albert Maritime Museum with a great display of history of not only Port Albert, but the whaling heritage and gas/oil exploration along the 90 Mile Beach. We also recommend Fish and Chips to be enjoyed by the waters edge!
With its lush gullies, giant mountain ash and tree ferns, Tarra Bulga National Park is one of only four major areas of cool temperate rainforest in the state. Try out one of the numerous walking tracks that emanate from the picnic areas. Meander through the forest, head south down to Tarra Falls, or take the Fern Gully Nature Walk, which includes magnificent views along the famous suspension bridge. Don’t forget to pack lunch to enjoy under a Mountain Ash at the Tarra Valley picnic area when you’re done.
Just a stone’s throw to town, the Yarram Holiday Park is the perfect place to spend a night away.
Head into town for dinner at the local, the Yarram Commercial Hotel serves up all the classics as well as Beaumont’s famous grass fed steaks. But before you sample some of the region's produce, ensure you leave yourself enough time to pick up an interactive map for the town's mural tour by world renowned street and silo artist Heesco Khosnaran. Check out What's On at the historic Regent Theatre - where you'll often find live performances along with film screenings.
Just 20 minutes from Yarram is the idyllic seaside coastal fishing village, Port Albert. Visit the charming port town for first-class fishing and stay for a fascinating history lesson. The original gateway to Gippsland, Port Albert is Victoria’s first established port. Head down to see the guys at Castim By The Jetty Boat Hire & Kiosk and enjoy a day out on the water or enjoy the serenity from the jetties while watching the world go by.
Not far up the road, you’ll find the 90 Mile Beach via McLoughlins Beach with two pleasant boardwalks but if markets are more your thing. Port Albert holds a Make it, Bake it, Grow it & Collectibles market on the 4th Sunday of every month.
