Gippsland Bowls Region
Your community gathering place for the most enjoyable
lawn bowls experience imaginable.
The East Gippsland Bowls Association was formed in 1956/1957.
The first president was C.E. Cardedge, of the Sale club, who was also the R.V.B.A.Councillor.
The secretary was A.V. Ewert, also of the Sale club.
Prior to the formation of the E.G.B.A. the area from Drouin through to Orbost, including
South Gippsland, was known as the Central Gippsland Bowls Association.
When E.G.B.A. was formed it included all clubs from Heyfield and Yarram to the
New South Wales border.
In 1983 the clubs in the western portion of the association decided to leave the E.G.B-A.
and form a new association being the N.G.B A., leaving the E.G.B.A. with 10 clubs –
Bairnsdale, Bairnsdale Golf, Bruthen, Lakes Entrance, Lindenow, Metung, Orbost,
Paynesville and TamboValley. HowittPark entered the association in 1987.
These 10 clubs remain today.
