Orbost Secondary College Profile


Orbost Secondary College is located in Far East Gippsland and is the only secondary school along the Princes Highway between Lakes Entrance and Cann River. It is a distance of 384km from Melbourne; approximtely a four hour drive.


Due to the availability of a huge range of outdoor activities - including boating, fishing, surfing, trekking, camping, skiing and cycling - Orbost has a steady tourism industry. 

Combined with the established dairy and vegetable farming industries, the local DSE and timber industries and the expanding range of health services, the natural beauty of the area makes Orbost a place where people come to holiday and stay forever.
