The Tambo River has some popular summer swimming spots and a drive (or bike ride) along its banks provides some great scenery.

More about the East Gippsland Rail Trail

The East Gippsland Rail Trail is a recreational trail and conservation reserve constructed on the alignment of the former railway that ran between Bairnsdale and Orbost. From Bairnsdale it travels though Nicholson, Bruthen, Nowa Nowa and Newmerella to Orbost.  With a total distance of 97km it includes some very picturesque sections through farmland and forest. A link track (Lakes Discovery Trail) has been constructed to link to Lakes Entrance. The Rail Trail Farmhouse is conveniently situated to provide comfortable accommodation almost adjacent to the rail trail.
