Get around[edit]

See[edit]

  • Mt Baw Baw. Baw Baw is a cheap and cheerful little ski resort that is suitable for the beginner/modest skier. It's a little more affordable than the more major resorts in Victoria (eg Hotham, Buller, Falls Creek). It also is a lot smaller and often goes most of the season without snow. Mt Baw Baw now has Australia's first and only BigAirBag - a variant on a fall cushion, used in the world of professional stunts, which is placed in front of a ski-jump so as to catch any fall from a jump.[2]
  • Wineries. West Gippsland has a few wineries that are worth visiting, such as Brandy Creek, Ada River and Wild Dog.
  • Tooronga falls. Tooronga falls is a nice little location just out of Noojee that has camping facilities and a very nice little waterfall, with few walking circuits which are quite pleasant.
  • Yarragon. Promoting itself as a 'Colonial shopping village', Yarragon offers a range of gourmet delicacies, as well as interesting antique and craft shops.
  • Noojee Trestle Bridge. Classified by the National Trust. From the bridge it is a short walk or bike ride along the trail back into Noojee.
