A Gippsland industry group is calling for the Federal Government to build high-speed rail stops in Gippsland instead of north and north-east Victoria.
The Federal Government has just completed phase two of its study on building a high-speed rail link between Melbourne and Brisbane.
Albury-Wodonga and Shepparton have been suggested as possible regional Victorian stops.
The Committee for Gippsland's chief executive, Mary Aldred, says Warragul, Moe, or Morwell, Traralgon and Bairnsdale are more deserving.
"We've got some better employment and education and tourism opportunities to take up," she said.
"If you live in Leongatha or Traralgon it'll take you around two hours just to drive to Tullamarine, sit around, for an hour, wait for your plane and then travel but with the high-speed rail, you're looking at two hours and 45 minutes to Canberra and a shorter distance from Gippsland to Canberra."
