What makes Conran special?

When we sea changed from St Kilda to East Gippsland we quickly discovered a passion for outdoor adventures.

We tried tents. Sleeping on cold, hard ground wasn’t our style.

So we hired a Jayco Swan Outback and set off on our first adventure.

This is where the nature-based travel spark ignited.

We bought our own camper and the love-affair for travelling continues to enrich our lives.

Our backyard is ‘God’s Country’. It is a region renowned for the natural beauty of the Ramsar-listed Gippsland Lakes, Alpine High Country, Coastal Wilderness and Snowy River Country.

In a fast-paced world, it’s important to unwind and recharge.

We love off-grid, nature-based adventures.

It gets us away from technology and we all appreciate the beauty East Gippsland has to offer.

Favourite destination?

For camping: Cape Conran, one of East Gippsland’s best surf beaches and a very special place.

For food: The Long Paddock, Lindenow. The ultimate piece of Michelin star heaven. In the middle of a small farming town, which so happens to be Victoria’s food bowl.

For a day trip: The Bruthen-Nowa Nowa-Lake Tyers-Lakes Entrance-Paynesville loop.

Why 3hrs From Home?

It’s fun to get out the maps and see where the road will take us.

When we go glamping, we love travelling at least three hours away from Paynesville, which is home.

Happiness is: exploring places, capturing them with the iPhone, finding the best places to eat and sharing these stories with you.
