Put simply, Korumburra is a calm and relaxing country town. The shops and shop owners are local, the supermarket is a simple IGA, and you will not find a large chain restaurant in sight. The neighborhood is safe and secure, and don't be surprised if you get a "good morning" or a "hello" everywhere you go! The houses are a mixture of traditional Victorian, modern new estates and brick homes. Take a walk down Radovick to see some examples of stunning coal mine era cottages and houses! The local IGA is a ten minute stroll away if you need any necessities (like tim tams!). In Korumburra's main drag you will find ATM's, a boutique clothing and homewares shop, 5 cafes, 4 opp shops, a handmade pastry and cake shop, 2 bakeries, Bendigo and Commonwealth Bank, the Burra Brewery for woodfire pizza and craft beer. We also have Indian, Chinese and quality Fish and Chips. Take a walk through the botanic gardens and laps around the showgrounds. Sport takes pride of place in our community so catch a game of local footy or soccer at the two sports ovals of a weekend if that's your thing! Coal Creek is a must for a couple of hours to understand the roots of Korumburra. You will be blown away by the preservation of the mining community - best of all its FREE! Dont miss a visit to the old Korumburra Train Station. Although no longer in operation you will find amazing photo opportunities and a gorgeous example of the old architecture that shaped the early years of the town. If beaches are more your pace, Inverloch is a 20 minute drive with gorgeous pristine coastline and surf beaches. In Leongatha a 10 minute drive away, find even more food options, opp shops and an Aldi and Safeway and quality butchers. We are surrounded by wineries too, so if you want a bottle of vino from East Gippsland to take home you are spoilt for choice. Prom Country Cheese is another pearl of a venue to visit (plus they sell wine and do tastings #winwin) For another cute local township experience, Loch is well worth a stop. With amazing cafes and new restaurants opening up. Here you will find a tiny township that oozes country charm. If you are up for a bit more of a roadtrip, Venus Bay, Tarwin River and Wilson's Prom are easily accessible. In Meeniyan you will discover a beautiful French bakery with delicious baguettes and scrumptious wood fire pizza at Trulli Italian restaurant. We are surrounded by stunning drives into rolling green dairy farms and hills, drive through Outtrim to Inverloch at sunset for INCREDIBLE views of the rolling green hills and still dams!
