Twin Rivers

Twin Rivers District includes Nicholson, Johnsonville, Tambo Upper and Swan Reach.

Nicholson, Johnsonville, Tambo Upper and Swan Reach are four towns set on two rivers – the Twin Rivers of East Gippsland.


An ideal spot for fishing and boating all year round, the region was initially an area for grazing, cropping and timber milling. Twin Rivers District now has a population of around 2,000 people and attracts retirees and tourists as well as people who work nearby in Bairnsdale and Lakes Entrance.
