Ensay sits alongside the Tambo and Little Rivers. The town is well known for producing prime beef cattle and is now known for wine. Indulge in a red “Devils Backbone” or a crisp chardonnay whilst soaking up the beautiful scenery and warmth of the Tambo Valley at the Ensay Winery.
Two historic hotels are in picturesque locations at either end of the town. The Little River Inn started as a shack in the 1840s and is believed to be the oldest hotel in East Gippsland where you can enjoy a cold beer, good pub meal and budget accommodation. At the other end of town is the magnificent Pub Gallery, once the Ensay South Hotel built in 1892. It last served patrons in the early 1960s but it is now the home to Robert Logie’s works of oil based paintings and drawings.
Take time to venture further with a drive through the Ensay Valley to the Moscow Villa Hut on Bentley Plain. The Bentley Plains walk is a great way to take in the sub-alpine grasslands and heathlands surrounded by snow gums. Marvel at the historic Washington’s Winch which was once used by loggers to snig logs up steep hillsides or catch a glimpse of a wild brumby on the Nunniong High Plains.
