INVERLOCH, VICTORIA

Inverloch is a seaside village in Victoria, Australia. It is located on the Bass Highway 143 kilometres southeast of Melbourne, at the mouth of Anderson Inlet, in the Bass Coast Shire and is located close to Australia’s southernmost stand of mangroves. At the 2006 census, Inverloch had a population of 4,140.

Inverloch is a popular tourist destination, particularly for surfers, kitesurfers, windsurfers and fishers. The town hosts a jazz festival each Labour Day long weekend in March. Inverloch's amenities include a visitor information centre, two Pubs, three motels, seven bed and breakfasts, three caravan parks and a foreshore camping reserve. Like most other Australian coastal towns Inverloch has a local surf lifesaving club. During 2005 and early 2006 the RACV built an eco-village holiday resort on the Cape Paterson Road near Inverloch.

Inverloch is a popular holiday resort town for Melbournians and many of them have holiday houses here.

  1. Hello there
    Love the feel of these photos - I can almost hear the wind and the noise the gulls make.
    Take care

  2. Wonderful shots Nick - I especially like the windblown walkers on the beach, the seagulls "playing" with the breeze, and the shot after that gets my money - a picturesque reminder of the beauty to be seen and enjoyed (and captured!) in Victoria. Thanks for sharing.
