Overview

Venus Bay

Experience the wild waters and golden sands of the South Gippsland coastline at Venus Bay, a small settlement nestled in vegetated sand dunes. The town has a population of around 500, but can surge into the thousands as anglers, surfers and families converge during holiday periods.

Surf beaches

Travel just outside the town to five superb surf beaches patrolled by surf lifesavers in the summer months. Find safe, sheltered beaches ideal for swimming at the state's longest sand spit at Anderson Inlet. 

Make your way along the coast from Venus Bay to Cape Liptrap for the chance to visit the old lighthouse and discover native Australian plants and wildlife.

Sparkling waters

The calm waters of Anderson Inlet make it an ideal destination for both boating and fishing. Cruise out and explore the inlet that extends all the way from Inverloch to the mouth of the Tarwin River and cast a line for flathead, salmon, tailor, whiting and trevally.
