Port Albert is a small coastal town in Victoria's Gippsland. Located over 200 kilometers away from Melbourne, this town is somewhat isolated and home to only a few hundred residents. Travellers choose Port Albert accommodation for the area’s popular activities: fishing and surfing. If you’re looking for a quiet place in Victoria for a beach vacation, check out holiday rentals in Port Albert.

Why Port Albert?

The coastal town of Port Albert has long been considered an anglers retreat. Many holiday rentals are within a short walking distance of the quaint fishing village and serve as a perfect homebase for an outdoor adventure. With a wharf, restaurants, boat ramp, and general store Port Albert has everything you need for a quality fishing holiday.

What To See And Do?

Port Albert is known for its slower pace of life and historic character. Many people come here looking to escape a long list of things to see and do, and prefer instead to spend their days fishing and sunbathing. Port Albert holiday rentals provide the convenience of a kitchen and barbeque to cook your catch after a successful day of fishing.

There are a few sights within Gippsland that are worth a daytrip if visitors are looking for things to do. Wilsons Promontory can be seen from many of the water-facing rentals, and is about an hour’s drive away. The Tarra Bulga National Parks are only about 30 minutes away and La Trobe Valley can be reached within about 40 minutes.

Port Albert is the perfect place to take advantage of all that a holiday rental has to offer. Look for a rental with a fireplace, an al fresco dining area, and maybe even a rooftop deck. There will be plenty of room to store all of your fishing equipment. Some rentals are pet-friendly, while others aren’t, so be sure to read the fine print if you want to bring your pooch along for a family vacation.

Top Local Attractions

The biggest attraction in Port Albert is the fish. Anglers come here not only for regular fishing trips, but also for fishing competitions. The town hosts the biggest fishing competition of the year each March, attracting fishing enthusiasts from across the country and beyond.

Port Albert also offers scenic tours. You can sign up to learn about this historic down that dates back to the mid 1800s. On the tour you will see the Old Port Walking Trail and the Port Albert Maritime Museum. Scenic boat tours, including bird watching, are also on offer.

Why Rentals?

Fishing and surfing enthusiasts will have a lot of choices for Gippsland accommodation. Holiday rentals will provide all the comfort, convenience, and services needed for a flawless fishing trip. With space to store your equipment, a kitchen to cook your catch, and space to relax in the evenings after fun-filled days, holiday rentals are the ideal accommodation for this type of trip.
