Gabo Island is rich in cultural history. This haven for plants and animals offers stunning landscapes with magnificent views of Croajingolong National Park.

The lighthouse was constructed from 1858 to 1862 using the distinctive pink granite found on the island and is the only operating island lighthouse in Victoria.

Tours of the 47-metre high structure are available. The views from the top are spectacular. If you are lucky, you might spot whales, dolphins and seals. Tour fees apply - book with at Parks Victoria’s Mallacoota office prior to your arrival on the island.

How to get there

The island is 13 kilometres from Mallacoota in far East Gippsland. Mallacoota is just off the Princes Highway, midway between Melbourne and Sydney. Access to the island is by air or sea from Mallacoota and is weather dependent.

Aboriginal Traditional Owners

Parks Victoria acknowledges the Aboriginal Traditional Owners of Victoria - including its parks and reserves. Through their cultural traditions, the Bidawal and Nindi-Ngudjam Ngarigu Monero identify Gabo Island as their Traditional Country.
