The Gippsland region is made up of a series of lakes and lagoons fed by 5 major rivers the Avon, Latrobe, Tambo, Nicholson, and Mitchell rivers. These rivers feed into the Gippsland lake system, Lake Wellington, Lake Coleman, Lake Victoria, Lake King, and Jones Bay.

To the west of the these lakes are the many farms and agricultural concerns. To the east lies the magnificent 90 mile beach further west is the great Alpine National Park and Avon Wilderness areas. In the middle you will find a series of towns and villages, hugely popular with visitors for the myriad of water activities available all year round.

The lakes are significant for more than just their scenery and water activities they are also home to more than 40,000 water birds such as swans, ducks, egrets, coots and many others some rare and endangered. The lakes have permanent water so the entire basin is a haven especially during times of drought. Bird watching is a common pastime here with many people visiting just for this reason.

The entire lake system is easily accessible by boat, making fishing a major pastime for visitors and an industry for the locals with a major fishing fleet located at Paynesville and boat hire available from many points all around the lakes.

Largely a rural region, Gippsland starts from the edge of Melbourne's west metropolitan region stretching east all the way to the New South Wales border, with the Great Dividing Range to the north and Bass Strait to the south. There are five recognised regions in Gippsland:

The Gippsland region also include regions defined for tourism purposes and the likes, such as Baw Baw Country and the Prom Country.
