Lake Guthridge and the Sale Botanic Gardens
The 150 year old Sale Botanic Gardens sits next to the Lake Guthridge precinct and contains beautiful gardens, grassed areas, paved walking areas, a playground (including flying fox), undercover picnic areas, sculptures, a fauna enclosure, sensory garden, elm forest and the Lakeside Entertainment and Arts Facility. The gardens measure approximately 5.1 hectares, with the adjoining Lake Guthridge and Lake Guyatt occupying an additional 27 hectares. The perfect place to go for a walk or a run.
Sale Common Wetlands and River Heritage Trail
The Sale Common Wetlands and River Heritage Trail offers a kaleidoscope of riverine and wetlands scenery in addition to heritage places, all marked with interpretive plaques. The trail begins at the Port of Sale and extends as far south as the celebrated Swing Bridge at the junction of the Thomson and Latrobe rivers. The return journey, if you so choose, takes in Sale’s beautiful lakes – Guyatt and Guthridge, as well as the historic Powder Magazine.
Port of Sale
A significant redevelopment was undertaken in 2004 which saw the precinct reinvigorated to include entertainment, art, heritage and leisure facilities. The development of extensive mooring facilities, a boardwalk, BBQ/picnic locations and walking paths saw the Port revitalised. In 2018, a major $14.53m redevelopment was undertaken which saw the former Sale Civic Centre, which overlooks the Port, transformed into the new Wellington Centre. This Centre houses the Sale Library, Gippsland Art Gallery, Sale Visitor Centre, Council Chambers, the Dock café and community spaces.
