Discover Old Gippstown 


Old Gippstown was established in 1968 with the aim of preserving the heritage and telling the story of the region, through a collection of buildings and artefacts. It is an historical village with 30 relocated buildings from Gippsland and 18 others being built to complete the town.

The buildings house a collection of furniture and artefacts dating from their eras. Its collections span the period from the early Gippsland pioneering and gold mining days to the model, mining town of Yallourn.

Old Gippstown’s core aim is to present the history of Gippsland for the benefit of present and future generations, by preserving, researching, recording and presenting the unique collections in its care.
