Gembrook was first settled by Europeans in 1873. Timber felling was carried out to prepare land for farming. Saw milling became the main industry when Puffing Billy Railway came to Gembrook in 1900.
In Gembrook today, potato, grape, chestnut and flower farms create a patchwork landscape, often with magnificent views of the distant blue ranges. Visit the historic Kurth Kiln, and Bunyip State Park just 7 kilometres from town, the perfect setting for a bush BBQ!
Enjoy the embracing freshness of the bush while bushwalking, horse riding or camping (4WD and trail bikes are permitted in designated areas). You may be fortunate enough to see a wallaby, wombat or lyrebird.
In town you can enjoy the Motorist Museum, gift shops and a range of eateries to cater for all tastes along with the supermarket, post office, school and much more!
