Whilst the Gippsland Lakes region may not be top of mind when you’re thinking winter getaways, there’s more reasons than ever before to rug up and visit East Gippsland this winter.

East Gippsland Winter Festival

Topping the list is the East Gippsland Winter Festival, which kicks off on June 17th through until July 10th, 2022, spanning the full width and breadth of East Gippsland. This year’s feature packed program includes food and wine events showcasing amazing local produce, twilight events such as lantern parades, live ice carving, and bonfire nights, plus laneway parties, brewery events and so so much more.

With over 100 events to choose from, visit the official website to see what’s on, book ticketed events (although most are free!) and start planning your visit. Come and be part of the community spirit as our towns and villages bring fun, laughter, entertainment and light to their proud patch of East Gippsland.
