Gippsland is one special place. Full of incredible food, wine, drinks, produce, and people. For many of us, it remains undiscovered. But not for long.

Gippsland is home to some of the most innovative and respected breweries and cideries in the country. Meet the makers that are changing the brewing game. 


Sailors Grave 

You’d be hard-pressed to find a more innovative and more respected brewery in the country.

Making a wild array of beers, Chris and Gab Moore take inspiration from the landscape and produce that around their home in Orbost, but from the people and community that surround them.

Whatever the beer you have from them, you can always expect one thing; refreshment. This is a subtle flavour that builds and builds and builds.  


Gurney’s Cider 

When you visit Gurneys Cidery, overlooking Corner Inlet and the wilderness of Wilson’s Promontory, it's easy to understand how the Gurnett family (originally from Somerset in the UK) fell in love with this part of the world.

Son Tom leads the cider-making side of and is creating truly special, and uniquely Gippslandian ciders from not just native Gippsland apples, but collaborations with local wineries and more.  

This is an absolute must-visit when in the region.
