Darnum is a small town in West Gippsland, Victoria, Australia, located 110 km east of Melbourne, in the Shire of Baw Baw. Get out of town with these interesting Darnum side-trips: The Enchanted Adventure Garden (in Arthurs Seat), Yarra Glen (Yarra Valley Chocolaterie & Ice Creamery & Yileena Park) and Coldstream (Badger's Brook Winery & Domaine Chandon Winery). There's still lots to do: identify plant and animal life at Moonlit Sanctuary Wildlife Conservation Park, browse for treasures at Tyabb Packing House Antiques, take in nature's colorful creations at Blue Lotus Water Garden, and stroll through Squeaky Beach.
