The mouth of the famous Snowy River at Marlo is only a 15 minute drive. Marlo has a General Store/Post Office, Hotel, Caravan Parks and Food outlets. Good fishing is available as a respite from golf, both at Marlo with access to the Snowy and Brodribb Rivers, and a bit further along the coast to Cape Conran, with access to Bass Strait and a fishery containing Flathead, Gummy Shark etc.
Other attractions in Orbost are the Slab Hut, located at Forest Park, a restored building from the late 1800’s which was relocated to its present site several years ago, and now operates as the Orbost Visitor Information Centre. Here you can find lots of information about attractions throughout East Gippsland. Located in the vicinity is the Orbost Exhibition Centre, which features a variety of displays, and traveling exhibitions. The centre also has craft displays featuring timber furniture and other items made of Australian timbers by local and Australia wide craftspeople.
The forests and rivers around Orbost provide a wide variety of flora and fauna, and can be accessed for walking tours or day trips by motor vehicle. We hope you find the time to come and play a round or two at Orbost Golf Club and also enjoy beautiful East Gippsland.
Approximately 40 minutes away is the largest inland waterway in Australia, the Gippsland Lakes with the entrance at Lakes Entrance.
