Kilcunda is a chilled beachside town, located between Phillip Island and Inverloch. The pocket-sized town has a fabulous delicatessen, airy cafes and is home to the iconic Killy Pub.
Admire the beauty of the iconic Kilcunda Trestle Bridge where Bourne Creek meets the sea, a drawcard for photographers enraptured by the rustic and weathered frame. The view atop the heritage-listed bridge looks over the sandy beach toward rocky outcrops.
The mouth of the Powlett River is a lovely spot to while away an afternoon. The wide, slow moving river is ideal for kayakers or a spot of fishing. At times a sand bar blocks the river’s course to the ocean, making a crossing to the other side of the river.
A short 200m stretch of coastline bounded by rocky headlands makes Shelley Beach a secluded slice of paradise. Strewn with millions of tiny shells, the beach is a fossicker’s delight.
