This scenic town is set in the midst of Gippsland’s bucolic countryside, near Wilsons Promontory, and has an undeniable village feel. Wander the boutique gift and jewellery stores, galleries, cafes and delicatessens along the town’s main street, flanking a leafy median strip. 


The town is a foodie’s favourite, boasting exceptional dining establishments, from the very best of traditional Italian cuisine, to pub fare and brunch hot spots, providores, an artisan bakery and gelateria. More wineries and breweries can be discovered on the South Gippsland Drink Trail which weaves through the surrounding hills.


Meeniyan is a gateway town for Wilsons Promontory, just one hour away. Discover dreamy beaches, hiking bliss, fern gullies and windswept sand dunes.

Revered beaches of South Gippsland’s coastline, including Venus Bay, Walkerville and Waratah Bay are only a short drive from Meeniyan and boast some of Victoria’s best beaches.


For more cycling, catch a section of the South Gippsland Rail Trail, passing right through the town centre for an easy ride amongst idyllic countryside and pockets of wetlands.
Walk amongst the coastal banksia and pockets of tea tree along the Point Smythe Nature Trail in the Cape Liptrap Coastal Park. The easy 5km walk or ride along the Venus Bay to Tarwin Lower Shared Pathway follows the kinks of the Tarwin River.
