Gippsland’s substantial tourism economy is underpinned by an abundance of unique visitor experiences, from food and hospitality opportunities to nature-based attractions like Wilson’s Promontory, the Australian Alps, Lakes Entrance and Croajingolong National Park.
World-class produce and natural settings make the region unrivalled as a space where the city meets the country. More than 65 per cent of Gippsland is given over to state-owned forests and parks, making nature-based tourism one of the most expansive industry sectors in the region.
To help continue this growth, the region has a large proportion of appropriately skilled workers supported by a strong established partnership between major providers of education, training and employment. Hi-Tech Precinct Gippsland will act as a gateway to further strengthen these connections between tourism businesses, research and industry.
