Places to Visit

We work closely with the Tourist Information Centres in Bairnsdale, Lakes Entrance and Sale and we have available a large range or tourist information including brochures and maps.

We can talk to you about all the local places that are “must see” and “must do” attractions within the East Gippsland Region.


The Clock Shop
As we have travelled extensively throughout Australia and overseas, we are able to pass on advice and information if required.
