Toorongo Falls

Just out of town is the stunning Toorongo & Amphitheatre Falls. Take a mossy, ferny walk through tranquil forest by the trickling (and sometimes gushing) river and take in two falls on the loop walk.

Hogget Kitchen

Time your arrival in Warragul for dinner or lunch at the hatted Hogget Kitchen for a celebration of Gippsland's bountiful goodness. Located on a beautiful vineyard, this restaurant focuses on local, grass-fed meats butchered, cured or smoked to its succulent best in-house.

Hogget Kitchen, you can enjoy open fires during the winter and in summer relax with lunch and a glass of wine, Only 3km south of Warragul

Walhalla

Walhalla is like nowhere else, set in a deep valley and surrounded by plunging hills. This picture-perfect town has a gold mining past that has been lovingly preserved. See the spring blossoms, ride the train, tour the underground gold mine, and time your visit with the Walhalla Springfest (16-25 Sep).

Formerly Stringer's Creek, the town has a population of 20 permanent residents, though it has a large proportion of houses owned as holiday properties

Noojie Trestle Bridge

Pack a picnic and head for the character-filled Noojee Trestle Bridge. The impressive wooden trestle bridge is also the starting point for a number of walking points and cycling tracks that carve through the towering forest.

This is the starting point for the short and sweet Noojee Trestle Bridge Rail Trail (3km one way) through scenic bushland, ending at the Noojee Railway Station Precinct.

The 21-metre historic timber Noojee Trestle Bridge sits along the meandering old railway line through the Noojee Bushland Reserve and the emerald green township of Noojee

Yarragon

With an unmistakable village feel, glorious heritage buildings and a deluge of shops to potter and browse, Yarragon's charms extend well beyond a leg-stretch on the highway.

There are shops that possess the magic ability to turn a "quick 5 minute peek" into a leisurely browse of beautifully curated displays of clothing and gifts, antiques and homewares. Heritage buildings line the main strip giving an extra dose of country charm and hospitality with cafes serving Devonshire tea or the old style lolly shop.

Yarragon, you can browse through specialty antique stores and fashion boutiques, discover an art lover's haven, or find a holiday read at an eclectic bookstore

Mushroom Rocks walk

Embark on a 3km (2 hour) return walk to Mushroom Rocks and see the impressive granite boulders amidst rugged alpine landscapes. The track gently climbs through cool temperate rainforest. Eyes peeled during spring and summer for gorgeous subalpine orchids. Once you arrive at the boulders, you get bonus points for letting out your inner child: climb, hide, chase and explore.

Mushroom Rocks is a collection of monumental granite boulders hidden in thick montane forest, only 3km to the rocks from the carpark, but it's a challenging walk
