It is a great base for a day trip to either Philip Island or Wilson's Promontory. Both of these are a nice scenic drive away and are feature packed. Why not stop in at Walkerville South on the way for beautiful protected beaches with incredible views.
Wonthaggi Coal mine is well worth a visit and has a very interesting underground tour, especially if the kids are into Minecraft. Another local Coal experience can be had at Korumburra. It is the South Gippsland version of Sovereign Hill.
There are farmers' markets aplenty. With Koonwarra, Tarwin Lower, Kongwak, Inverloch and Wonthaggi all hosting markets, there is generally one on somewhere. They have beautiful fresh local produce.

Great family getaway
Great for a little family getaway... really enjoyed our time
Dune Haven is a comfortable and well equiped homestay.
The proximity to the beach and the well appointed house make this a very easy and relaxing place to stay even if its blowing a gale outside. We highly recommend it.
Dune Haven is lovely. My little family really enjoyed our stay. It’s only a walking distance to beach no.5 and the host provided a great service. The portacot that is on the property was broken and he arranged for us another one. Definitely will come back again when our baby is older.
Fantastic family stay
Really lovely home with a beachy feel. Amenities are fantastic, beds are comfy, and the location is beautiful. Planning to stay again soon.
That one you are looking for!
There is something reassuring about discovering that the owners of your rental are serious about their property and ensuring that those who stay there have a good time.
First impressions of Dune Haven are very good. It is a spacious, attractive, well presented and maintained property. It is modern, scrupulously clean, and exceptionally well located just minutes easy stroll from the number 5 beach. That alone gives it an excellent rating. But once you poke around the house a bit, you see the extent to which the owners have gone to make the property as enjoyable and trouble free for renters as possible.
First, there are impressive entertainment options... flat screen TVs, PlayStation, Wii, Bluetooth speakers and a substantial collection of DVDs. There are books and games. There are beds set up for six people, but there are also two additional trundle beds stashed away! For those with babies and infants, there is even a portable crib, pusher, even a babies bath at the property. So if you’ve forgotten (or just couldn’t be bothered) to bring these things, you’re covered. There is a pushbike in the yard, and an acoustic guitar on a stand in the living room. There is a fireplace with wood cut and stacked ready, and a huge gas barbecue. And on top of all of this, your dog is welcome! I can’t say how impressed I was with the effort the owners have gone to, to make life easy and pleasurable for their customers.
I don’t think I could recommend a beach rental more highly, particularly for the price.
We (2 adults, 2 children - 9 and 10, no dog) stayed in October 2017 and our children described our stay as one of the best beach holidays they’ve had.
A great place to get away from it all...close to Phillip Island and Wilson's Promontory or just do nothing. Fenced yard for dogs...check each morning for wombat holes!!! Lol!!! Doyles Road Inlet worth a look with dogs. Friendly, helpful owners.
