Koo-wee-rup is a small picturesque town located 80km from Melbourne in Victoria’s West Gippsland. A village of 1300, it is surrounded by fertile land best known for its asparagus industry, potato growing and dairying.

Koo-wee-rup’s history is the story of pioneers who struggled to settle the land. What makes Koo-wee-rup’s development unique is that the first settlers were faced with a wild and impenetrable swamp covering 40,000 hectares. The swamp was eventually conquered and 400 kilometres of drains were carved with nothing more than picks, shovels and wheelbarrows.

Displays in the Koo Wee Rup Swamp Historical Society Museum pay tribute to those hardy folks who dug a future for the district. Today, you can take a turn around this land, on a Koo-wee-rup Asparagus Tour to learn more about the area and the local industries.

A 5km drive east along the South Gippsland Highway offers another introduction to life on the land through the Warook Cattle Farm where your hosts offer hay rides and shearing demonstrations.
