The Area
Orbost (population 2,500) is surrounded by rich river flats of the Snowy River in far eastern Victoria. The area around Orbost was originally settled in 1842 for cattle grazing and the surrounding mountain forests produce hardwood timber.

Tourism has also become an important industry as Orbost is close to many national parks, including the Snowy River National Park, Alpine National Park, Errinundra National Park, Croajingolong National Park and Cape Conran Coastal Park. It is 14 km from the mouth of the Snowy River where it runs into Bass Strait near the small coastal community of Marlo, a popular holiday and fishing destination and from where paddle steamers and ketches once carried produce to Melbourne.

The Orbost region has four State primary schools, one Catholic primary school, and Orbost Secondary College (Government). It is blessed with a milder climate than Melbourne and this encourages locals and visitors alike to enjoy fishing, boating, swimming, surfing and walking along the stunning coastline with rocky shores, sheltered bays and endless golden beaches.

Orbost is 375 km east of Melbourne, and is a 5 hour drive on the Princes Highway. You are also able to travel by train from Melbourne to Bairnsdale and then coach to Orbost. It also has a small local airport.
