Venus Bay is a quiet seaside village an easy 2 hour 150kms drive from Melbourne through the beautiful Gippsland countryside. It is also half way between Philip Island 45 minutes away and Wilson's Promontory 45 minutes away two of Victoria's most popular tourist attractions.

The Venus Bay shops are a 5 minute drive away and include a general store/mini supermarket, a pizza shop, ice cream shop, gift shop, cafes and restaurant/bar that has live music most Friday evenings. The closest main town is Inverloch a 20 minute drive away. This has larger supermarket and many shops, numerous markets and restaurants
The house is a 10 minute walk to the beach and a 5-10 minutes walk to the inlet flats where the kangaroos graze every day and especially in the evening. The house has a wombat that lives there and many beautiful birds: parrots, cockatoos, galahs, wrens and the butcher birds and magpies are happy to be hand fed they love mince meat. On a clear night, once the sun sets, the star show comes out as you relax on the deck whilst listening to the gentle sounds of the surf in the background.
