Sale Botanic Gardens

The 150 year old Sale Botanic Gardens sits next to the Lake Guthridge precinct and contains beautiful gardens, grassed areas, paved walking areas, a playground (including flying fox), undercover picnic areas, sculptures, a fauna enclosure, sensory garden, elm forest and the Lakeside Entertainment and Arts Facility.

The Sale Botanic Gardens originated in 1860 when approx 20 hectares of land was set aside as a botanic garden. Twenty four years later, additional swampy land, now Lake Guthridge, was included in the site. Over the ensuing years, the site has endured many incursions and changes, including use as a golf course and appropriation of various sections for sporting activities and the construction of a fauna park.

Today, the botanic gardens measure approximately 5.1 hectares, with the adjoining Lake Guthridge and Lake Guyatt occupying an additional 27 hectares. The Gardens owe their botanic heritage to Baron Ferdinand Von Mueller, the first state botanist, and Mr William Guilfoyle, the then director of the Royal Melbourne Botanic Gardens.

As well as an abundance of bird life visiting the parklands nearby, there is a comtemporary fauna enclosure containing Red-Necked Wallabies, Pademelons and Parma Wallabies set into a landscaped natural environment with excellent viewing opportunities.

Gippsland Art Gallery

The Gippsland Art Gallery was established in 1965 as the Sale Regional Arts Centre. The Gallery was the first public art venue to open east of Melbourne. A Victorian State Government Grant of ?40,000 enabled construction of the Gallery, which was subsequently run by a Committee of Management. The Gallery was staffed entirely by volunteers until its first Director, Gwen Webb OAM, was appointed in 1976. It continued to operate as a community gallery until 1994, when it came under the management of the newly formed Wellington Shire Council. The Gallery relocated into the Port of Sale Civic Centre, where it reopened in 1995.

In July 2015 the Gallery moved next door to the Port of Sale Business Centre, 64-66 Foster Street, Sale as a temporary measure while the old Port of Sale Civic Centre is redeveloped.

The Gippsland Art Gallery collection currently consists of approximately 1,330 objects, including but not limited to painting, sculpture, works on paper (drawings and prints), photographs, textiles, metalwork, woodwork, and indigenous and tribal art.

The Maffra Exhibition Space is also run by the Gippsland Art Gallery and displays artworks with a focus on Gippsland based artists.

Sale Powder Magazine

Colonial Governments in Victoria built Powder Magazines to provide safe conditions for the storage of explosive powder which was used by the gold mining industry.

Built in 1864-65, the Sale Powder Magazine served the needs of North and East Gippsland. The Sale Powder Magazine has massive walls and buttresses and barrel vaulting in the ceiling. To reduce the chance of an accidental explosion, timber dowels were used to fix the flooring.

Barrack like in appearance, the building is almost encircled by the watercourse of Flooding Creek, historically giving it a buffer from bushfires. The Magazine became private property around 1925 and in 1995 it was rediscovered through a heritage study conducted by the former City of Sale having been used as a private residence for many years.

The property is now owned by the Wellington Shire Council, who utilised the services of a heritage architect to produce a schedule of work for its restoration. It is managed by a Committee of Management responsible to the Sale Historical Society.

Sale Common Wetlands

The Sale Common State Game Refuge is located on the South Gippsland Highway, just south of the city of Sale. The Sale Common covers approximately 300 hectares, 70 percent of which is freshwater marsh. The remaining area is covered by red gum woodland and grasslands.

From the car park on the South Gippsland Highway, a short walking track leads through woodlands and grasslands past the information shelter to the lookout.

A longer walk (7.2 kilometres, 2.4 hours return) along Flooding Creek Track can be accessed from the eastern end of the boardwalk. This narrow, winding track passes through Red Gum woodlands and ends near the Latrobe River. On the way there are extensive views of the morass. The lookout overlooks the northern section of the Common, while the bridge leading to the lookout allows visitors to examine some of the plants and smaller pond life of the morass.

A key feature of the Sale Common is the extensive boardwalk that enables visitors to observe the wetland at a closer level. The boardwalk winds its way through a variety of habitats, starting from the edge of the swamp, through deeper water, past islands and through a small reed bed.
