The Location

Venus Bay is approx 165kms south east of Melbourne. Travel time from City via Monash Freeway is approximately 2 hours.

The town is nestled into the sand dunes on a narrow peninsula of land bordered on one side by the ocean beaches of Bass Strait and on the other by the calm waters of Anderson Inlet.

The sandy beaches stretch for 22km and include 5 magnificent surf beaches. Beach number 1 is patrolled by surf lifesavers during the summer months. The huge beaches are great for surfing, ocean fishing, swimming, walking, windsurfing, body surfing and beachcombing.

Explore the rugged natural beauty of Venus Bay with a bushwalk in Cape Liptrap Coastal Park to spot the wildlife and admire the striking scenery. Visit Cape Liptrap Lighthouse or try some of the boating experiences.

The Tarwin River flows into Venus Bay providing a tidal river which is perfect for river and estuary fishing. Fishing platforms along the bank provide excellent access to the river for anglers. Alternatively, cycle the bike path from Venus Bay to Tarwin Lower or just stroll along the boardwalk which follows Tarwin River.

Anderson's Inlet is the state's longest sand spit. Stroll along the 2km walking path, discover the rich bird life in the wetlands and mangroves or try fishing in the Inlet's sheltered waters.

Venus Bay is also central to many natural attractions in the South Gippsland area, situated midway between Wilsons Promontory National Park and Philip Island.


Just a few minutes drive to Venus Bay central, there is a licensed General Store, Cafe's, Restaurants, Fishing and Tackle shop, Gift Shop, Gallery, and a range of coastal activities and markets.

The nearby Tarwin Hotel supplies a courtesy bus on weekends with door-to-door pickup and return on request with a variety of shops and Tennis Court hire.
