Old Gippstown - Gippsland's Heritage Park

Old Gippstown is a heritage park built on 8 acres of landscaped Crown Land. It is unique in that 80% of its buildings are original (not purpose built). There are many artefacts that have been donated and are in the buildings and surrounds. It has one of the largest collections of horse drawn vehicles held in public hands. We are a deductible gift recipient, so donations of $2 or more to the Park are tax deductible. We also have a number of areas available for hire around our park, with prices available on request. Arrangement for school tours can be made as well as bus groups. Weddings, functions and parties can be catered for.

This wonderful park has around 30 heritage buildings that show Gippsland's heritage. It's made to look like an old town and is authentic, with virtually all buildings moved from their original locations to the park. There is plenty of space to walk around and get to see all the exhibits. Give yourself at least 2-3 hours to really immerse yourself in the history. There are many signs around giving you information on the history of the buildings and also about life in the old era. Fantastic value for money too and plenty of parking as well.

Edward Hunter Bush Reserve

Reviewed By JohnG3121 - Greater Melbourne, Australia

lovely remnant bushland reserve that offers picnic areas and a multitude of walks. we entered from the main carpark on coalville rd. through this entrance is a Rotunda is an info board that shows all the walks and a comprehensive species list for reserve. we than walked up to the Reservoir which was the main swimming hole until the moe pool was built in the 70s. of all the walks the coral fern walk was the best in my opinion. this reserve is a great way to unwind and get close to nature

Moe botanical Gardens

Reviewed By Crystalline4u - Traralgon, Australia

Firstly trying to locate these Gardens was not as easy as one would think...driving in from the freeway, you will notice a small sign post indicating you should turn at the lights...but it is easy to miss. Even the sign for the botanic Gardens is easy to miss if you are concentrating on the road, and then locating where to park? Well.. .it's a bit of a battle.
After typing Botanic Drive into the GPS, the car led us to where we needed to go. On arrival we were very underwhelmed. Leaving the car, there isn't much to see except tennis courts and a few amenities. Regardless, we had made it that far so we walked. The walk was a pleasant one winding through the path... and once you start walking, it is lovely. There is an odd little suspension bridge that would not be ideal if you had any mobility issues , but the rest of the garden area was easy to get around.
If you wanted a break from a drive... this could be it. Once you locate where it is and find parking that is. There are picnic tables and toilets that were surprisingly clean.
Much could be done with this park... "Botanic Gardens are institutions holding documented collections of living plants for the purposes of scientific research, conservation, display and education."... I just don't see this as a botanical garden... but more as a pleasant park.

Moe to Yallourn rail trail

Reviewed By Crystalline4u - Traralgon, Australia

We found this incredibly hard to locate... we drove up and down Bennett Street and were unable to locate it. When we did find it, it was purely by accident. We were walking through the local Botanical Gardens and literally stumbled upon the signage,
We located the very well kept track and started to walk... it seems it's well used by the locals, there is plenty of birdlife and all in all... it's a great track.
My concern with the track is the lack of parking and signage to locate it. There is no signage to indicate that they have this great walking track and no parking available unless you park at the nearby Gardens.

Ollerton Avenue Bushland Reserve

Reviewed By Crystalline4u - Traralgon, Australia

I typed Ollerton Avenue into my GPS to locate this reserve...but when I arrived, I was quite unsure where to park. I parked on a grassy knoll opposite the school and got out to walk through the reserve. I met a local as I entered and asked her where the parking was, and even she was unsure of where it was.
The reserve is easy to walk through, with birdlife prevalent in the fauna around you... it is quite suitable for people with disabilities. So while it is a lovely reserve... there are some major issues. One is the distinct lack of parking but the second issue is a much bigger one. Here is a gorgeous reserve that looks like it's been used as a waste disposal... there was litter everywhere. In fact, it wasn't just litter ... there had also been a pram discarded there. What a huge disappointment. What happened to the "Keep Australia Beautiful" campaign.. .it's disappointing that Australians allow this to happen.

Apex Park

Reviewed By Crystalline4u - Traralgon, Australia

Interesting... I can see how someone has posted photos for Lion's Park on here... the two parks are not too far from one another. The big difference is that Apex Park is more natural... there is room for children to play tag and run. There are lots of trees and free space.
It's a lovely location with some delightful areas for children to play and a lovely long slide. It's a place to have a picnic on the grass, to stroll and to enjoy the natural area with the park mingled in the area.

Lions Park

Reviewed By Crystalline4u - Traralgon, Australia

This playground has so much on offer in such a small area. There are BBQ areas nearby which makes it easy to watch your children and enjoy an outing. The BBQ areas are sheltered.
For me it was too much... too busy, but then, I am not a child. I am sure a child would love being overwhelmed with colour and excitement at every turn.
