Things to do
Looking to spend time in nature? Head to the Sale Botanic Gardens, famous for its variety of beautiful trees and gardens. Stroll beneath the changing maple trees in autumn, enjoy the free-roaming peacocks and take in the lakeside views. There are plenty of picnic facilities, scenic walking paths and a playground to keep the kids entertained.
If you want to get out on the water, join a boat tour for a journey around the vast Gippsland Lakes for birdwatching opportunities. If you prefer to keep your feet on the ground, stroll along the lovely boardwalk or cast in your fishing line off the designated Sale fishing platform.
Admire the many historic buildings along Foster Street, including the Sale Historical Museum, which houses local exhibitions and artefacts showcasing local life in Sale from its beginnings as “Flooding Creek”. Take a photograph of the Criterion Hotel, one of the oldest hotels in Gippsland or check out the giant clock tower.
History buffs should visit the Gippsland Armed Forces Museum, located at the old West Sale Airport. Browse exhibitions showcasing Gippsland’s role in conflicts, where you’ll find details on the training of airmen during World War II and a traditional aircraft on display outside.
Sale is on the Princes Highway about 200 kilometres east of Melbourne. You can take the train to Sale from Melbourne via Traralgon. Once you’re in town, the easiest way to get around is by car or taxi.
