||"Gold made a large contribution to the development of Gippsland. The difference, however, between the Gippsland goldfields and those to the west was that their remoteness meant they would only have a limited life. The measure of success here was not in the long-term survival of the mountain townships but in the development of the service towns on the plains such as Sale, which grew into major centres. These towns have been the foundation of Gippslands prosperity and developed as a direct result of the discovery of gold in the nearby mountains." -- introduction.
