Fishing and Camping in Gippsland

Gippsland is an amazing place to go fishing and camping. Both activities are closely related when visiting Gippsland. Fishing can be done in the rivers, lakes, and ocean, while camping can happen in the many free camping spots, coastal and mountain locations. Mean maximum temperatures in lower areas range from 24 °C (75 °F) in January to 15 °C (59 °F) in July. In the highlands of the Baw Baw Plateau and the remote Errinundra Plateau, temperatures range from a maximum of 18 °C (64 °F) to a minimum of 8 °C (46 °F). However, in winter, the mean minimum temperatures in these areas can be as low as −4 °C (25 °F), leading to heavy snowfalls that often isolate the Errinundra Plateau between June and October.
