Globy does Gippsland

Victoria’s Gippsland is the destination of the next great Global Paddler road trip. The Visit Victoria website says we should all “Escape to Gippsland, occupying the vast eastern corner of Victoria, and be rewarded with natural landscapes of unparalleled beauty.” That glowing recommendation was way too good for me to disregard, so I compiled this itinerary to help me experience the best paddling the area has to offer, from Inverloch to the NSW border via famous holiday hot spots like Wilsons Promontory, Lakes Entrance, Croajingalong National Park and Mallacoota.

  1. […] wore my Bomber Gear Blitz Splash Top on pretty much every day of my recent Globy does Gippsland research trip and always felt completely warm and dry. I am therefore delighted to recommend it to […]

  2. Photos from the trip are being added to the Global Paddler online gallery (http://bit.ly/14xrjVF) every day so you can see all these amazing places along with me.
