The Beach Retreat @ Venus Bay is a serene haven ideally located behind the dunes only a few minutes’ stroll from the surf and fishing at Beach 5 and from Cape Liptrap Coastal Park. The pure white beaches are wide and clean and best of all often largely deserted. You can find serenity in walking for hours or just reading a book away from crowds of beach-goers.
If activity is what you crave there is a patrolled surf beach, tennis courts, parks and many spectacular walks nearby as well as a fishing jetty and boat launching ramp. Venus Bay is particularly well suited to bike riding as it is mostly flat and there is a bike path running all the way from Venus Bay to nearby Tarwin Lower.
A short drive takes you to restaurants, shops and Beach 1 which is patrolled throughout the summer months. Farmers' Markets, gourmet food destinations and wineries are close by. We are ideally situated for sightseeing as we are half-way between the fairy penguins of Phillip Island and beautiful Wilson's Prom but without the crowds of either. It is a great Australian summer getaway or cozy winter hideaway.
Our aim is to ensure that our guests enjoy a tranquil holiday that will continue to give happy memories long after they have returned home.
