Once a rest stop for fortune hunters heading to East Gippsland’s gold diggings, the village of Bruthen is set at the fork in the road between the High Country, Gippsland Lakes and the hinterland.
Twenty four kilometres from Bairnsdale on the Great Alpine Road, Bruthen oozes country charm and historical character. The East Gippsland Rail Trail cuts through Bruthen and many of East Gippsland’s bushwalks start in the area.
This plan is a joint effort by the Bruthen and District community and council. It is managed by the Bruthen Community Planning Group and includes the community’s top 10 priorities, identified by residents who attended a consultative evening in 2012.
The Bruthen Streetscape Plan details the preferred option for the key sites for development which were identified in the Bruthen and District Community Plan 2004-2009. It is a joint initiative between council and Bruthen District Citizens Association. A copy of the plan can be accessed by contacting us.
