State Coal Mine


The State Coal Mine offers a journey back in time to discover what life working in a coal mine was like in the 1900s. Venture underground through the dark network of tunnels to get hands-on at the coal face and learn how Victoria's hard working men extracted the black gold.

Only 90 minutes from Melbourne, the State Coal Mine is the only historic coal mine experience in the Southern Hemisphere, offering interactive fun and interest for the whole family both above and below ground.

Rising from its beginnings as a make shift 'Tent Town', Wonthaggi quickly grew to the thriving town we know today. Operating from 1909 to 1968, the State Coal Mine produced almost 17 million tonnes of coal for Victoria's industries and railways.

Please note, conditions can change in parks for many reasons. For the latest information on changes to local conditions, please visit the relevant park page on the Parks Victoria website.

Please be bushfire ready in the great outdoors. Refer to the Bushfire Safety section on the Parks Victoria website for tips on how to stay safe.

Bunurong Marine and Coastal Park


Located about six kilometres south-west of Inverloch in South Gippsland, this proposed park covers 2100 hectares and about 5 kilometres of coastline. This coastline is beautiful, full of striking rock formations, attractive sandy coves, rugged sandstone cliffs, dunes and prominent headlands.

The coastal waters protect a remarkable range of habitats including intertidal reefs, subtidal rocky reefs, algal gardens and seagrass beds. The waters here are cool, akin to Victoria's central and western coasts, however they are relatively protected from south-westerly swells due to the location of far away King Island.

The marine life of the region is considered special due to the unusual set of environmental conditions. The intertidal sandstone reefs of the area boast the highest recorded diversity of intertidal and subtidal invertebrates in eastern Victoria. The range of seaweed species is also large and includes greens, blue-greens, browns and encrusting, coralline reds.

Seagrass meadows and sandy bays are also important habitats within the area. The diversity of habitats supports many marine animals including seastars, featherstars, crabs, snails, Port Jackson Sharks and up to 87 species of fish. If you are lucky you may see Humpback Whales, Southern Right Whales or Subantarctic Fur Seals.

True Colours - an exhibition by Gayle Rodgers


Gayle responds to colours of nature, an autumn leaf, a dry gum leaf, rocks, the ocean, things that have a simple presence. She is very conscious of the environment and the impact people have on it, and her art is often a response to those concerns.

Her paintings are created in an abstract style with a fluid, marbling of colours and shapes depicting movement. She adds simple white bird forms to represent the fragility of our bird life.

Her glass collages are an ongoing experiment with colours, decals and shards of glass. She rearranges them into a pleasing ensemble, focusing on the spontaneity of the medium and the serendipity created as one colour blends into another.

Colour is the main influential back ground to all her works.
