If you are traveling through the historical town of Sale or staying around the scenic area then a visit to the Port of Sale is a must. A destination worth the visit even if to grab a bite to eat and to stretch your legs on a long journey. With a tourist information centre making a stop even more worth while to grab those brochures and maps of nearby areas.
For fisherman it’s a lovely spot to throw in your line whilst the kids play at the skate park. A place where family and friends can chat whilst throwing a snag on the BBQ and take in the view of the fishing boats bobbing up and down. For those needing/wanting to watch their kids skate there are BBQ facilities that enable you to cook up a storm whilst watching the kids perform tricks. The picnic/BBQ area is under shelter.
If you don’t have a boat and wanting to get on the river, you can grab a historical cruise. Ensure you plan ahead and book your tickets to avoid disappointment.
On our visit the water lilies looked so beautiful. Imagine how bright and colourful it would look when they’re in full bloom.

Our visit to Sale was at the end of a 4 day escape exploring the stunning picturesque Gippsland Region and up through the Snowy Mountains. It was a short but welcoming break for a family wedding.
There are so many wonderful places to explore. From caves at the Buchan Reserve, Snowy Mountains, iconic McKillops Bridge reached by driving along 11km of what is said to be one of the most dangerous roads in Australia. Then there is the 600m Little River Gorge which is Victoria’s deepest gorge. You cannot miss out on visiting one of many of the gorgeous sandy beaches along the Ninety Mile Beach.
