The once independent village of Wurruk has virtually been absorbed by the city of Sale, one of the major administrative centres of the Shire of Wellington, which stretches south from the eastern foothills of the Great Dividing Range to the stunningly beautiful Gippsland coast.
Wurruk, in fact, is only minutes from the western shores of Lake Wellington which, along with Lakes Victoria and Reeve, the Sale wetlands and Ninety Mile Beach make up the core of the Gippsland Lakes Coastal Park.
This is a very special part of the world and the region from the mountain slopes to the ocean is regularly rated as Victoria’s most popular holiday area.
It is a region with the potential to realise every holiday-maker’s dream. You can cruise and fish lakes, rivers and sea, swim stillwater or surf, comb a virtually-endless beach, bird-watch, browse the wares of an array of art and craft galleries or just gaze across ever-changing land or seascapes.
