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.
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. The coastline from Venus Bay to Cape Liptrap offers visitors the chance to see an old lighthouse and native Australian plants and wildlife.
