Things to Do in Venus Bay, Victoria

Venus Bay township is on a narrow peninsula of land with Anderson's Inlet on one side and the ocean on the other. It has a small shopping centre of essential stores offering groceries, take-away food, fishing and surfing equipment. Its main appeal is its five surfing beaches with the only patrolled beach being #1 beach, home of the Venus Bay Lifesaving Club. Surfing is the most popular sport on the beach along with swimming, sunbathing, walking, snorkeling and fishing. The large seawater lagoon of Anderson Inlet is ideal for boating and fishing.

Wilson's Promontory National Park is about an hour's drive from Venus Bay holiday rentals and is one of the most popular natural attractions to visit.

Perfect property for the perfect getaway!

5 of 5
My family and I had the most relaxing week in this beautiful house, located so close to beach 1 in Venus Bay. We truly didn't want to leave! Perfectly kept, comfortable beds and well equipped kitchen for cooking great meals and listening to nature as you eat on the porch! We wouldn't hesitate to stay here again, even in the cooler months as the fire place looks like it would facilitate a cosy Winter escape as well. Chris, thanks so much for lending us your lovely house!
