Sperm Whale Head

Google Code
There are two national parks around the Gippsland Lakes: the Gippsland Coastal Park which includes the Barrier Landing and Bunga Arm, and the Lakes National Park which includes Sperm Whale Head and Rotamah Island.

At Sperm Whale Head, you'll find a public jetty, large picnic area, picnic shelter, gas and wood-fired barbecues, a delightful swimming beach, and the most glorious views across Lake Victoria to Paynesville.

There are also a number of easy and interesting walking tracks. Keep your eye out for Chestnut Teals, swans, plovers and herons, and land birds such as Yellow Robins, Grey Fantails and Thornbills. In spring, look for the abundant native orchids including Nodding and Striped Greenhoods.

There is a very large population of kangaroos at Sperm Whale Head - watch out for joeys in pouches. (Please don't feed the kangaroos, they are wildlife and that's how they should remain.) Introduced hog deer are also in this area.

Where the picnic shelter stands today was once the home of the Barton family, who grazed cattle throughout this area.
