Nilma is a small town located between Warragul and Darnum. It offers visitors the chance to pass through a town loaded with country charm and beauty on the way to experiencing all the delights our region has to offer.
Located just over 100kms from Melbourne, Nilma is a relaxing drive straight down the M1, with no traffic lights once you leave the city.
If you’re in the area it is well worth a visit to our largest town, Warragul. Enjoy an afternoon exploring the wide range of shops, eateries and entertainment options available in town, and enjoy several attractive gardens and parks, with the most scenic being Civic Park. Situated in a valley, Civic Park features a large lake, rotunda, picnic shelters, walking tracks, and a waterfall. Overlooking the park is the West Gippsland Arts Centre which hosts world-renowned performers from music stars and international ballet companies to famous comedians and nationally recognised plays and shows.
Or head further down the highway to Yarragon Village. As you enter Yarragon village you are welcomed with a line of beautiful shops and restaurants welcoming you to some of the region’s best antique shops, art galleries, and eateries. Home to unique and incredible vintage markets, specialty antique stores, fashion boutiques, and the town showcases some of the region’s vibrant arts culture. Pick up a fabulous piece of artwork produced by one of the many local artists; indulge in some fashion retail therapy and then tempt your taste buds in one of the numerous cafes and eateries inx town.
For lovers of nature, the majestic Mount Worth State Park is less than half an hour from Nilma. Mount Worth State Park protects a remnant of the forests that once covered the western Strzelecki Ranges. It is a stunning, peaceful location and one of Baw Baw’s greatest hidden gems. Tall, wet forests of Mountain Ash, Mountain Grey Gum, and Blackwood grow on the hills and slopes, and tree ferns flourish in sheltered gullies, offering every visitor the opportunity to experience them up close with several the walks throughout the park. You may see one of our local lyrebird friends scratching amongst the leaf litter or discover relics of the timber industry that operated on the slopes around Mount Worth in the 1920s.
With so much to do, a day in our region is never enough, and with delightful B&B’s hidden in the rolling green hills of Baw Baw or luxury hotels, there is the perfect accommodation option waiting for you.
