Radio Stations

Western parts of the Baw Baw region are within range of most metropolitan Melbourne AM/FM/DAB+ radio stations, but as you travel eastwards, reception for these radio stations may diminish. Hilly areas of Gippsland, especially, have limited ability to receive Melbourne radio stations.

Gippsland-based radio stations can be received very well in most parts of Baw Baw.

Such stations include:

3GG 531 AM news, talk, music and sport
3BBR-FM 103.1 FM musical variety and local information
StarFM 94.3 FM music and light entertainment
ABC Gippsland Local Radio 100.7 FM news, talk and sport
Vision Australia Radio 93.5 FM news and entertainment for vision impaired listeners
ABC News Radio 95.1 FM news
ABC Triple J 96.7 FM modern music
ABC Classic FM 101.5 FM classical music
TRFM 99.5 FM music, entertainment and sport
