Wild Dog Winery, Restaurant, Vineyard and Cellar Door Situated just three kilometres from Warragul (100km east of Melbourne) on Warragul Korumburra Rd, Wild Dog Winery & Restaurant offers stunning views of the Strzelecki Ranges combined with picturesque vineyard and olive plantation scenery from the newly established cellar door and restaurant complex. Most Successful Exhibitor Gippsland Wine Show 2009 The winery and vineyard was established in 1982 with the name "Wild Dog" coming from the nearby township of Warragul that is derived from the Aboriginal word "Warrigal" meaning dingo or wild dog. In 2009 Wild Dog was presented with the "Most Successful Exhibitor" award at the annual Gippsland Wine Show. Experience the taste of Gippsland Wild Dog Winery invites you to experience the seasonal A La Carte Dinner Menu or relax on the deck in picturesque vineyard settings, enjoying a light brunch or lunch, taking in the atmosphere that is uniquely Wild Dog, whilst enjoying the range of award winning cool climate wines. Wines: Extensive range of sparkling, table and dessert wines, including some exclusively to cellar door wines. 'In the heart of Gippsland's fertile dairy country, Wild Dog is a lovely place to visit. A long tree-lined driveway leads down through rich farmland, grazing cows, and tree-topped hills to the winery and cellar door. A new restaurant takes advantage of the superb views with large windows and a generously proportioned outdoor deck area, while a wetlands environment is being developed for visitors to stroll through. It's excellent white wine country with Chardonnay and Riesling the highlights, but Shiraz is evolving in quality as the vineyard matures.' Review by Ralph Kyte-Powell.

Near the township of Buchan, lies a honeycomb of caves full of spectacular limestone formations. The caves were formed by underground rivers cutting through limestone rock. The formations are created by rain water seeping through cracks and dissolving some of the limestone. As each droplet comes through the roof it deposits calcite which crystallises in a small ring. In time, stalactites are formed on the roof of the cave, and stalagmites build up from droplets which fall to the floor. Discover the beautiful calcite-rimmed pools of Royal Cave and the elaborate stalactites and stalagmites of Fairy Cave on a guided tour. Tours are conducted daily. Buchan Caves is eco-certified and committed to sustainable practices and provides high quality nature-based tourism experiences. Aboriginal Traditional Owners Parks Victoria acknowledges the Aboriginal Traditional Owners of Victoria - including its parks and reserves. Through their cultural traditions, the Gunaikurnai identify the Buchan Caves Reserve as their Traditional Country.

Point Hicks Marine National Park

Point Hicks Marine National Park is 4000ha and is located alongside Croajingolong National Park in East Gippsland. The granite cliffs of Point Hicks beautifully frame the marine park which represents Victoria's far-eastern marine environment. Within the waters one can discover a range of habitats including granite subtidal reef, intertidal rock platforms and offshore sands. Some notable features are front reef and Whaleback Rock which have deep gutters of 1-15m and support many invertebrates. The seafloor drops away rapidly from shore descending to 90m which makes it one of the deepest marine areas within Victoria. The site also contains two shipwrecks, the SS Kerangie and the SS Saros. Throughout the park there is a startling diversity of marine life. Many creatures found here are not found further west because the water is too cold, for example, the large Black Sea Urchin. Through the remarkably clear water, one can see swaying brown seaweeds with colourful sponges, sea squirts and sea fans growing around their base. There are numerous brightly colour seastars, brittle stars, abalone, fan worms, sea shells, hermit crabs and delicate nudibranchs (sea slugs). The fish diversity is just as great including schools of pelagic (free-swimming) fish such as Butterfly Perch, Silver Sweep, Long-finned Pike and Banded Morwongs.
