Maffra Golf Club

Fulton Rd, Maffra VIC 3860

The Maffra Golf Club is one of the jewels in East Gippsland's golfing crown. Established more than 50 years ago the course is beautifully maintained with mature trees, immaculately grassed fairways and true fast greens which are among the best in country Victoria. The course (Par 72men 6056meters) is quite flat with just a couple of moderate slopes but is no 'pushover' in terms of golfing and requires consistent shots off the tees, the fairways and most importantly on the greens. The clubhouse is available for functions and has a fully licenced bar. For those planning a longer stay, powered caravan sites are also available. Weekly competitions are held on most days and special yearly events are well spaced through the year so have a look at the club website for more details.

The Gippsland Vehicle Collection provides south east Australia with an outstanding rotating display of interesting vehicles including cars, motor-bikes, machinery, historic vehicles, carriages and auto memorabilia. Located in the very attractive Central Gippsland rural town of Maffra, the Motor Museum is an easy three hour drive from central Melbourne along the excellent Princes Highway. Or alternate routes can be taken around the coast, through the hills, or even over the big hill, Mount Hotham and the Alpine Way. Maffra has long been a strong motoring centre and boasts a local hill climb track run by the Maffra and District Car Club and a Motocross track run by the Maffra Sale Motorcycle Club. There are so many interesting and unique vehicles to see that we have a rotating theme of display vehicles for four months at a time. Their current feature displays are listed on the website. The vehicles are on loan from private collectors, mostly in Gippsland. The massive building of around 2200 square metres was built during World War Two as a vegetable dehydrating plant to provide vegetables to their troops overseas, and has been several other factories and warehouses since then, finally falling into disrepair around 15 years ago. The very first donation to the new museum was the 110 year old 'Maffra Spectator', Double Royal printing press. This five and a half tonne, belt driven machine is now proudly displayed in their Motor Museum along with other antique printing presses and equipment as a most important part of Maffra's heritage. Bus tours and school group are welcomed and catered for.

Sale Powder Magazine

Walter Street, Sale VIC 3850
Colonial Governments in Victoria built Powder Magazines to provide safe conditions for the storage of explosive powder which was used by the gold mining industry. Built in 1864-65, the Sale Powder Magazine served the needs of North and East Gippsland. The Sale Powder Magazine has massive walls and buttresses and barrel vaulting in the ceiling. To reduce the chance of an accidental explosion, timber dowels were used to fix the flooring. Barrack like in appearance, the building is almost encircled by the watercourse of Flooding Creek, historically giving it a buffer from bushfires. The Magazine became private property around 1925 and in 1995 it was rediscovered through a heritage study conducted by the former City of Sale having been used as a private residence for many years. The property is now owned by the Wellington Shire Council, who utilised the services of a heritage architect to produce a schedule of work for its restoration. It is managed by a Committee of Management responsible to the Sale Historical Society.

Sale Botanic Gardens

Guthridge Parade, Sale VIC 3850
The 150 year old Sale Botanic Gardens sits next to the Lake Guthridge precinct and contains beautiful gardens, grassed areas, paved walking areas, a playground (including flying fox), undercover picnic areas, sculptures, a fauna enclosure, sensory garden, elm forest and the Lakeside Entertainment and Arts Facility. The Sale Botanic Gardens are located as part of the Lake Guthridge Parklands precinct, surrounding Lake Guthridge in the centre of Sale. The Sale Botanic Gardens originated in 1860 when approx 20 hectares of land was set aside as a botanic garden. Twenty four years later, additional swampy land, now Lake Guthridge, was included in the site. Over the ensuing years, the site has endured many incursions and changes, including use as a golf course and appropriation of various sections for sporting activities and the construction of a fauna park. Today, the botanic gardens measure approx 5.1 hectares, with the adjoining Lake Guthridge and Lake Guyatt occupying an additional 27 hectares. The Gardens owe their botanic heritage to Baron Ferdinand Von Mueller, the first state botanist, and Mr William Guilfoyle, the then director of the Royal Melbourne Botanic Gardens. A major feature of the Botanic Gardens is the many remaining trees planted in the late 1800's by Von Mueller as well as remnant indigenous redgums some dating back 300 years. Near the gardens there are over 4km of trails to enjoy incorporating an indigenous art trail. As well as an abundance of bird life visiting the parklands nearby, there is a comtemporary fauna enclosure containing Red-Necked Wallabies, Pademelons and Parma Wallabies set into a landscaped natural environment with excellent viewing opportunities. There is also a delightful "sensory garden" located within the botanic gardens for all to enjoy. The Botanic Gardens are located in Guthridge Parade Sale, with ample free parking on site
