The Neighbourhood

Orbost is a country town with a population of 2400 people, situated in the far east of Victoria between Lakes Entrance and Cann River. It is 306km (190.4 miles) from Melbourne's CBD. If you're traveling from Melbourne, then the town of Orbost is a 45min drive towards Sydney from Lakes Entrance.

It is situated on the Snowy River, surrounded by its rich river flats. Its commercial centre is along Nicholson Street and includes two supermarkets, a selection of shops and cafes. At the northern end of the commercial centre, at the Salisbury Street roundabout, is a memorial clocktower. As Nicholson Street heads northwards, it breaks out into a wide boulevard with lawns and trees along its central strip.

Forest Park is an attractive reserve in Orbost, wedged between Nicholson Street and the Snowy River. It features a slab hut which was built in 1872 and relocated to its present site. The hut is open to the public and furnished as a period settler's home. Other attractions in Forest Park include the Orbost Exhibition Centre and gallery, as well as a number of rainforest walks which begin in the park.

Good views of Orbost, the Snowy River and the bridges across its flood plain can be enjoyed from Grandview Lookout, located south-west of Orbost in the small community of Newmerella.

14 kilometres downstream along the Snowy River near its mouth is the small coastal community of Marlo.

The towering peak of Mount Raymond, 16 kilometres east of Orbost on the Princes Highway, provides spectacular views of the region, including as far south as the wetlands adjoining Brodribb River. On a clear day the view extends all the way down to Bass Strait and the Ninety Mile Beach.

The Cabbage Tree Creek Flora Reserve, located south of the highway and to the east of Orbost, includes the Cabbage Tree Palms - Victoria's only native palms exclusively located in this area. There are picnic facilities and walking tracks through the surrounding forests which are home to a large variety of birdlife.

A home with the standards of a hotel

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Orbost holiday house over the grand final weekend. The property has everything you'd need for a family getaway. Everything in the property is good quality as if bought for personal use. The beds are excellent, the living room lounges are very comfortable, kitchen is well stocked with everything you need. The toy collection,books and puzzles were just the right icing on the cake. I have liked few things that'd like to buy for our home and I might bug you for that Rachael. Well done on making this home a great house for our holiday.
