Sale is the largest city in the Wellington Shire with a population of approximately 13,000 people. It is a popular place to live due to its close proximity to the Ninety Mile Beach and Gippsland High Country, while only being 2 hours from Melbourne.
The Port of Sale precinct is a main feature of the town and is part of the Gippsland Lakes system, allowing boats to cruise all the way to Lakes Entrance. The town also features the beautiful Lake Guthridge/Guyatt area, which includes playgrounds and a walking track which leads to the picturesque Botanic Gardens.
The town also features many modern facilities including an Entertainment Centre, Art Gallery, the Aqua Energy Pool/Gym Complex and the Gippsland Regional Sports Complex.
Attributing much of its prosperity to the oil and gas fields in the Bass Strait and also the East Sale RAAF Base, Sale is seen as the engine of the local economy, providing work and attracting skilled people to the region.
