East Gippsland

Overview


Lake at Glenmaggie

Shell middens at Mallacoota Inlet indicate that this area was being used at least 2,500 years ago by Aborigines. These middens contain remains of animals, fish and shellfish as well as stone and bone tools. The middens also contain human burials and even a buried dingo.

Gippsland was named after the governor of New South Wales at the time of its first European settlement, Sir George Gipps (1791-1847). At the time of naming, Victoria was then part of the Colony of New South Wales where Gipps was governor form 1837 to 1846.
