Mallacoota is one of Gippsland's great escapes, surrounded by the magnificent wilderness of the Croajingolong National Park and set on the beautiful Mallacoota Inlet.
Unwind at this pretty costal town, blessed with Victoria's warmest winter temperatures and cool ocean breezes in summer. Discover the coast from the popular and patrolled Betka Beach to the rugged Quarry Beach where snorkellers explore the rocks, or the peaceful Secret Beach. The Top Lake, Bottom Lake, the inlets, cliffs and beaches are all great places to explore – or just sit and watch the beautiful sunsets for which the area is renowned.
With sparkling waters on every side there's no better way to see the riches of Mallacoota than from the back of a boat. Bring your own ride and berth at a local jetty or hire one and head off exploring the waterways.
Another must-see is Gipsy Point – a beautiful peninsula jutting into the top
lake of the Mallacoota Inlet, home to a large mob of kangaroos.
