Inverloch: Beaches, Sports and Scenic Strolls

Inverloch is a hub for aquatic activities, located in Gippsland, Victoria. Only 140km from Melbourne, the laidback holiday destination fronts the waters of Anderson Inlet and boasts ample surfing, swimming and boating opportunities. In addition, inland attractions are aplenty if you’d rather keep your feet out of the water. Whether you are looking for resort-style holiday accommodation in Inverloch or a more peaceful rental, such as a cabin or bed and breakfast, there is a holiday home for you.

Take a Stroll through Inverloch

Scenic Inverloch is best enjoyed on foot. Strap on your walking shoes and head over to Screw Creek Nature Walk, a 1.5km (one-way) trail that runs through salt marshes, mangroves, boardwalks and finally up to Townsend Bluff for panoramic views over Anderson Inlet. This trail is ideal for families with kids, as the course is not difficult and does not include any steep hills. For views over Bass Straight, undertake the George Bass Coastal Walk, where you are able to meander along the cliffs to marvel at the scenery below. Of course, you can always take a stroll along Inverloch’s waterfront to watch the waves.

Hit the Beaches

Inverloch is home to numerous beaches, each with its own perks. Visit the Main Surf Beach to take a surfing lesson or to hop on your own board and catch some waves. The Caves Beach is the ideal destination for a long stroll, and if you see a seashell, grab it! This is one of the few beaches in Inverloch that permits visitors to take seashells home with them. Inverloch’s main foreshore, The Glades, is right on Anderson Inlet. Here, the waters are ideal for sports and swimming alike and quite a few shops line the shore. All in all, there are over 10 beaches in the area immediately surrounding Inverloch, and this means you are never far from an opportunity to hit the waves.

Water Sports in Inverloch

What better time to try a new water sport than on holiday? Inverloch is the ideal background for a number of aquatic activities, including swimming, surfing, kayaking, body boarding, windsurfing and more. If you want to try water sports without getting too wet, go sailing through Anderson Inlet. Have no fear if you do not have all of the proper equipment for your sport of choice, there are plenty of places to rent what you need to start your adrenaline-filled day. And if you are new to a sport, many of these shops offer lessons.

Snatch the Catch of a Lifetime

While staying in Inverloch, check out one of the many fishing spots. Cast your line off one of the deserted beaches to stay on shore while wrangling your catches. Otherwise, venture down a little further to stand in the surf while you fish. You’ll typically head home with mullet, juvenile snapper, King George whiting or silver trevally. For a waterborne adventure, hire the services of one of the Inverloch area's fishing charters and battle with fish of the deep sea.

Something for Every Guest

If you're looking for something other than waterfront or outdoor activities in Inverloch, you can turn inland for different types of entertainment. Just a short drive from Inverloch, Maru Koala and Animal Park is a must-see destination if you are travelling with kids, or if you just have a desire to pet and hand-feed koalas and wallabies. Alternately, the Dinosaur Dreaming excavation site allows you to learn more about the first dinosaur bone ever found in Australia. Travellers can also get a sense of adventure without leaving the car by cruising along the Bunurong Coastal Drive, which offers prime ocean vistas.

Holidays in Inverloch

During the summer months, the skies above Inverloch are sunny and the temperature huddles in the mid 20s, which sets the perfect backdrop for everything the town has to offer. In the winter, days will get chilly but visitors can enjoy quieter holidays. Of course, if your prime interest lies in swimming, surfing or other water sports, you may prefer to book an Inverloch break between December and February.

Waking up in the morning and looking out the window with this amazing view of the mountains and having the cows only feet away, made you feel like you were out in bush but yet, your only 5min away from the main town. Michael provided us with fresh berrys, jam and eggs from his farm which were just delightful. if you want a secret little get away, I highly recommend the Karginal cottage.
