The Australian region of West Gippsland has retained its historical culture, has gourmet food and wine and a tree that people on holiday in Australia would love to hug, a travel writer has said.

“The densely forested headwaters of the Tarago have sparkling creeks as tributaries [and are] all worth exploring,” says Paul Edwards, writing for Australian newspaper the Age.

He recommends heading on the Ada Tree walk where an 84-metre tall tree is too irresistible to avoid a hug, despite its 15.7-metre diameter.

The region can be reached from Melbourne in an hour and a half by car and has “magnificent scenery” adds Mr Edwards.

He also suggests heading to the Toorongo Falls which are especially “spectacular” after a period of rain.
Yarragon “punches way above its weight” for those looking to shop for home wares, gifts or food, he continues, and he highly recommends trying the bread.
West Gippsland forms eight per cent of the territory of Victoria, on the southern tip of the country.
