Surfing at Inverloch, Gippsland, Victoria, Australia
Show map


Admire spectacular coastal scenery, take a dip in the sea or go wind-surfing – Inverloch is your gateway to the beautiful protected waters of Anderson Inlet, often described as the most popular estuary in Victoria.

Water sports
Pack up the van and bring the kids for a real seaside holiday, just 140 kilometres south-east of Melbourne. Enjoy the laidback village vibe of this coastal treasure and make the most of stunning surf beaches, quiet swimming spots and abundant boating opportunities.

Set sail on the still waters of Anderson Inlet, a shallow estuary where the Tarwin River enters Bass Strait, and later on check out the many species of waterbirds that come out at low tide.

Gimme shelter
Whether you're roughing it or pampering yourself you'll find plenty of accommodation options to suit your taste and budget, from campsites and cabins to B&Bs and resort style venues.

Bushwalks and hiking
Various boardwalks, tracks and trails provide a tranquil setting for great short walks, bushwalks and hiking activities. Wander the boardwalks and discover the mangroves and marshlands along the Screw Creek Nature Walk or, for a bit for fresh sea air, stroll along the cliffs of the George Bass Coastal Walk and take in spectacular views of Bass Strait. 

Natural beauty
Look out for 'Eagles Nest' – a large rock structure adjacent to the coastline that resembles the top half of a map of Australia.
