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.
