WELCOME TO PORT WELSHPOOL -VICTORIAS SECRET A LITTLE SLICE OF HEAVEN

WELCOME TO PORT WELSHPOOL -VICTORIAS SECRET A LITTLE SLICE OF HEAVEN
The Port and surrounds

Port Welshpool is a lovely drive of about 90 minutes from Cranbourne once you hit the Sth Gippsland Highway and is in an undiscovered "peaceful paradise" just a short drive from beautiful and unspoilt Wilsons Prom.

We own our lovely "home away from home" (well the bank does) and instead of tenanting it we decided to share our little paradise with likeminded people who will enjoy this lovely area as much as we do. "The Port" is a very historic part of Victoria and has an all weather/ all tide boat ramp (1 minute from the house) with great fishing from the jetty or the wharf and also very safe swimming and paddling from the lovely sandy beach.

The Port is also the entrance to the Prom either by boat or by a short drive so you can explore at will or just relax and there are also MANY other beautiful attractions in the area. There is a great General Store which has all your needs, as well as a must for the delicious fresh takeaway foods on offer and there is also a great "local" with great people and atmosphere.

Fishing is hugely popular in the area. Wilsons Promontory National Park and the islands of Corner Inlet can be reached by launch or sailboat from the port. There is a launching ramp and boats can be hired locally. Hog deer, an endangered species in their native Asia, have been introduced into a State game reserve on Snake Island, in order to bolster their numbers.

The Port Welshpool Museum, open daily, features marine displays and an unusual assortment of maritime curios. The house, built in 1881, was one of the first substantial dwellings to be constructed at Port Welshpool. The builder, J. Avery, had to walk 21 miles from Port Albert every Monday, and returned by foot each weekend. It is thought to be one of the oldest buildings in the shire of South Gippsland. On the lawn is the fishing boat, the Janet Isles, which was used by the house's owners, the Smith family, for several generations.

Barry Beach, a few kilometers west, is a supply base for the oil rigs of Bass Strait. Steel platforms are constructed here and towed into the strait, where piles are driven through the hollow legs and a deck is welded on. An observation area, overlooking the terminal, has been organised.

The area was reputedly named after jack-of-all-trades, John Baragwanath, who owned land at the mouth of the Agnes River. Skilled at ironwork, photography, and surveying, he manufactured his own camera and telescope and assisted the locals in the guises of an informal doctor, a legal counsellor, and a bush dentist - always carrying a set of forceps with which to yank out troublesome teeth.
Harold Lasseter - the man who made and prompted numerous expeditions to central Australia by claiming that a mother lode of gold, known as Lasseter's Reef, was there to be mined - lived in the area for his last thirty years. He died returning from one of his own trips in about 1931

The township of Welshpool, a few kilometers to the north, relies upon the dairy and wool industries. 9 km north-west of Welshpool you can visit one of the highest waterfalls in Victoria at the Agnes Falls Reserve, where the river plunges 60 m over the gorge. The damming of the river above the falls ensures the water supply Welshpool and other local towns. Walking tracks, picnic and barbecue facilities are available. To get there, head west along the highway and turn off at Slades Hill Road, near the school. The route is signposted. Return via Toora for maximum scenic value.

PETS: Also please note we do not allow pets after three VERY bad experiences.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Lovely house and place. Close to water and local pub where dinner and staff was great. Owner was quick communicating and lovely to deal wit. Highly recommended.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from All a family needs. We enjoyed our stay in a well equipped, warm, comfortable and quiet little secret part of Melbourne. A lovely family weekend of walks, games with a very short walk to the pub.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect escape. Stayed at port welshpool for a few days midweek fishing. Victorias Secret had everything we needed and was very comfortable. Short walk to the pub which was a bonus as the open fire there was a real welcome and made it hard for us to leave. The meals are sensational and they have a great selection. The boat ramp is only a very short drive as is the pier for land based fishing. I would highly recommend staying here whether for a family or just a weekend getaway you will not be disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic. Just what we wanted for a nice, quiet, relaxed weekend. We could visit Agnes falls and walk the Prom. Few minutes walk to the Port Welshpool pub for dinner.
