Destination guide

Time to switch your electronic devices to aeroplane mode

Turn on the out-of-office, and bury the phone at the bottom of your suitcase, because Inverloch is the kind of place that deserves your full attention. The town's proximity to Melbourne (just a couple of hours away), makes Inverloch vacation rentals a favourite among city folk looking for a beach escape – but with epic coastal highways, endless hiking trails and world-class wildlife-watching, an Inverloch vacation can be as active as you like. The jewel in Inverloch's crown is Anderson Inlet – a sheltered bay that's perfect for swimming and water sports, or maybe just snoozing on the wide sands.

Activities

Get ready to shoot the breeze in Anderson Inlet

It's an old stereotype that Aussies love their surf, but the waters of Anderson Inlet are unusually flat. And you know what that means? Yep – it's windsurfing and kitesurfing heaven. There's great surf of the traditional kind on the more exposed beaches, and for those who prefer to keep their feet on solid ground, the area's full of hiking trails. Try the nearby George Bass Coastal Walk or the 16-kilometre Bass Coast Rail Trail for starters. If you're more about wheels than boots, then the area's also fantastic for driving tours. Head west towards Cape Paterson for awesome cliff-top scenery.

Weather

An Inverloch vacation is a breath of fresh air

Victoria has a reputation for soaring summer temperatures, but the good news for Inverloch vacation rentals is that the coastal location means it's not quite so hot here. That's not to say you can leave the sunscreen at home, just that the sunny summer days are often freshened up by a brisk sea breeze – much to the delight of Anderson Inlet's kitesurfers. As for winter here, it tends to be very mild, and can be a perfect season for getting out on those hiking trails. While snow isn't unheard of, it's rarer than dinosaur bones in these parts.

Natural highlights

Get a beakful of the birdlife in Bunurong

It's the birdlife round here that really sets Inverloch head and shoulders (and beak) above other Aussie seaside towns. It's internationally recognised as a top birdwatching area, with several rare and endangered species present. This is partly thanks to the extraordinary biodiversity of the Bunurong Marine and Coastal Park. Everything from invertebrates and seaweeds to whales and seals can be found in these waters, and fishermen get understandably hot under the collar about the place. Even the coastline itself is something very special, with sandy beaches and towering cliffs, plus wetlands, dunes and even coastal mangroves at Screw Creek.
