GOLDEN CREEK OLIVES - REGIONAL FOCUS
Southern Gippsland is an all season destination located only an hour and a half from Melbourne. The region is renowned for spectacular scenery, unspoilt beaches, fishing, lush rainforests, museums, thriving arts communities, wineries and farm-fresh produce. Rolling green pastures transform into spectacular water vistas as you make your way through an array of delightful townships and villages.
For those looking for an insight into our past, discover our mining and marine heritage at museums throughout the region such as the Wonthaggi State Coal Mine, Korumburra’s Coal Creek, Foster’s Museum and Port Albert’s Maritime Museum.
Bushwalking opportunities abound in Wilson’s Promontory and Tarra-Bulga National Parks, along the Limeburners walk, Grand Strzelecki Track or you can walk or cycle the Great Southern Rail Trail.
For water action, outstanding surfing spots are located all along the coast from Phillip Island to Wilson’s Promontory. Sandy Point is a world-class slalom & surf sail boarding and kite-sailing mecca.
Throughout the district there is a wide variety of galleries and shops featuring quality products from local artists and crafts people, complemented with great cafes and restaurants to meet all tastes. Some of our favourite eateries of Southern Gippsland include Wildfish (Port Albert), Moo’s at Meeniyan (Meeniyan), Tomo (Inverloch) and KO Bar & Grill (Fish Creek).
Whether it’s seafood, succulent beef and lamb, award winning pies and preserves, locally grown extra virgin olive oil or fresh fruit and veggies you’re in foodies’ heaven!
Local wineries produce medal-winning cold-climate wines from unirrigated grapes ripened slowly, developing intense varietal flavours, with deep rich colours in the reds and crisp and complex whites.
Our farm is near the gateway to the Wilsons Promontory National Park. The three traditional owner groups with a connection to Wilsons Promontory are the Gunaikurnai, Bunurong and Boon Wurrung people.
The Prom is named ‘Yirik’ and ‘Warnoon’ by the traditional owners. It is a sacred site for the traditional people who have visited the Prom for thousands of years. Evidence of their presence remains in the extensive middens (shell deposits) behind many of the beaches and in stories like those of Loo-Errn and Tiddalik.
Wamoon (Yirik) is the home of the spirit ancestor of the Brataualung people known as - 'Loo-errn', the guardian of his people. Tiddalik was a mean frog who got up to some mischief in the "Dreamtime" belonging to the Aboriginal people of South Gippsland but Tiddalik escaped our corner of Australia a long time ago and can be found in all parts of Australia and in many other countries today.
Some of the descendants of the traditional people still live in Gippsland and are working together to share more of their people’s heritage with visitors and to pass on knowledge to future generations.
