Suburb Overview

Bairnsdale is a small city in Gippsland, Victoria, Australia. With a population at the 2006 census of 11,282, it is a major regional centre of eastern Victoria along with Traralgon and Sale.

Bairnsdale is located on the river flats of the Mitchell River, near where the Mitchell River flows into Lake King.

Bairnsdale is the commercial centre for the East Gippsland region and the seat of local government for the Shire of East Gippsland.

The origin of the city's name is uncertain, however it is believed to have been derived from the name of the property owned by pioneer settler Archibald Macleod.

Bairnsdale is sited on a bend of the Mitchell river, with the river flowing in along the northern edge of the town, before turning south to flow along the eastern edge, although suburbs are now found across the river to both north and east, e.g. Wy Yung and Eastwood. The river floods at intervals of several years, inundating areas of the town close to the banks and closing the highway bridge.

The Mitchell River flows into Lake King at Eagle Point Bluff. Between the town of Bairnsdale and Eagle Point Bluff are found the Mitchell River silt jetties, second only in length to those formed at the mouth of the Mississippi River in the United States.

Bairnsdale's commercial centre is laid out along the wide avenue of Main Street which is a continuance of the Princes Highway.

The Aboriginal name for Bairnsdale was Wy Yung, meaning spoonbill. Wy Yung is now the name for a suburb of Bairnsdale, located north of the town across the Mitchell River.

The current name was taken from the name of the property owned by pioneer settler Archibald Macleod, who took up the run on the west bank of the Mitchell River in 1844. Bairnsdale is probably derived from the name of Macleod

The town site was surveyed in 1859, with the first blocks of land sold in 1860. Lucknow on the east bank of the river, was already a thriving village. The Post Office opened on 2 February 1858 at Lucknow and was relocated to the township and named Bairnsdale on 3 April 1862. Lucknow remains as a suburb of Bairnsdale.
