Pearl of Victoria’s coastline, Inverloch boasts an enviable list of water-based activities – swimming, kite-surfing, boating, fishing, surfing and snorkelling. The charms of the beachside hamlet stretch well beyond its dashing coastline, with its laid-back vibe, welcoming community and cornucopia of eateries.
Long, lazy days can be spent on the tantalisingly beautiful beaches. Take a refreshing plunge in the crystal clear ocean or stroll along squeaky-clean stretches of sand. The gentle Inverloch Foreshore, adjacent to the town centre, is perfect for families. Around the headlands, waves arch and crash on the Surf Beach with generous swells.
Along the rocky shore of Flat Rocks, about five minutes out of town, is the site where more than 6,000 bones, teeth and footprints from small dinosaurs have been found. Head down to the Dinosaur Dreaming site at low tide and walk in the footprints of those beasts who ruled the earth, with items dated to 115 million years ago.
EAT & DRINK
The eating scene is solid with humming cafes, delicatessens, and classic pubs all with a strong focus on seasonal and local.
Some parts of the world are just meant for growing grapes, distilling spirits and brewing beer and cider and the South Gippsland Drink Trail is one of them. Make Inverloch your base to explore the surrounding hills crammed with wineries and breweries.
WALKINGTake an easy amble along the Inverloch Foreshore Walking Track. The 5km (return) shared track follows the contours of the Bass Coast with views across Anderson Inlet. The scenic Screw Creek Nature Walk is lavished with salt marshes and mangroves, as it snakes its way up Townsend Bluff for knockout views across Anderson Inlet.
