Foster Town Centre.

Foster was initially built as gold mining town in 1871, though its mine was closed down in the 1930s. Today, Foster is better known as the main service centre for Wilson’s Promontory. Foster is renowned for its rolling green farmland, award winning local produce and established wineries. An array of shops and restaurants can be found along Main Street, including the Exchange Hotel, the area’s family-friendly hotel bistro. Those who would like to learn more about the region’s gold mining history can take a short stroll to the site of the Victory Mine, which once made the town its fortune.

Neighbouring lookout points showcase the best of the surrounding countryside, including the Foster North lookout and the Mount Nicholl Lookout, where you can see a stunning view through the distant coast and the mountains of Wilsons Promontory National Park.

Driving down into the township of Foster from Leongatha, just before turning into the Prom Country Lodge, you will see a breathtaking view of the rolling hills of Gippsland with a back drop of the Shallow Inlet and the mountains of Wilsons Prom.

Fish Creek.

Fish Creek is a small town with an artist hub that much larger towns would envy. The four art galleries include the town’s original Hilltop Gallery housed in a quaint old farmhouse set amidst a mature orchard, resident Labrador and peacocks. The two galleries in the town centre are Gecko Studio Gallery which each month hosts a new exhibition by a featured artist, and the curiously named Ride the Wild Goat where you can see the resident artist at work in his studio and furniture workshop.

The Celia Rosser Gallery houses the work of renowned botanical artist Celia Rosser as well as other featured artists. It is also the home of well-known children’s author Allison Lester, who has a shop and studio in town.
