Venus Bay, a small coastal town located 165km from Melbourne, is one of Victoria's best kept holiday secrets.

The town is nestled into the sand dunes on a narrow peninsula of land bordered on one side by the ocean beaches of Bass Strait and on the other by the calm waters of Anderson Inlet.

The golden sandy beaches stretch for 22km and include 5 magnificent surf beaches. The beach is patrolled by surf lifesavers during the summer months. The huge beaches are great for surfing, ocean fishing, swimming, walking, windsurfing, body surfing and beachcombing.

Explore the rugged natural beauty of Venus Bay with a bushwalk in Cape Liptrap Coastal Park to spot the wildlife and admire the striking scenery. Visit Cape Liptrap Lighthouse or try some of the boating experiences.

The Tarwin River flows into Venus Bay providing a tidal river which is perfect for river and estuary fishing. Fishing platforms along the bank provide excellent access to the river for anglers. Alternatively, cycle the bike path from Venus Bay to Tarwin Lower or just stroll along the boardwalk which follows Tarwin River.

Anderson's Inlet is the state's longest sand spit. Stroll along the 2km walking path, discover the rich bird life in the wetlands and mangroves or try fishing in the Inlet's sheltered waters.

Venus Bay is also central to many natural attractions in the South Gippsland area, situated midway between Wilsons Promontory National Park and Philip Island.

Venus Bay has a general store, several cafes/takeaway's and a number of speciality shops.

Incredible weekend retreat

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our weekend away. The views are breathtaking, the place well cared for, a wood heater providing a cosy atmosphere, ample seating for family of up to 8. The appliances were of a high standard.

Within a short drive you can also sample some fish and chips or eat in at Cavity Restaurant. Also if you forgot to stock up on supplies, it's an 8 minute drive from the local IGA.

This is a perfect home away from home. Highly recommended for a weekend getaway or a week of relaxation.

Thank you Kirsty, look forward to returning to your lovely holiday home.

Perfect winter weekend getaway

  • 4 of 5

Wanted a nice quiet weekend away for our anniversary.. and that's exactly what we had! Sunrise ticked all the boxes - modern, clean, homely, fireplace, pets allowed and a great view. Our border collie loved the garden, playing on the lawn and laying in front of the fire. Thanks for a memorable weekend Sunrise!

A touch of Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Met up with family from interstate for a relaxing get together at Sunrise. What a fantastic place, the view is spectacular, and the kids and couple of dogs had a great time exploring the gardens. The house itself is very modern, with an amazing kitchen, and is very well maintained and appointed with absolutely everything you could would want. The linen and towels were a godsend. Kirsty was great to deal with, and made everything so easy. We will be recommending it, and would love to be back for a summer stay!

Brilliant Sunrise!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our time at Sunrise. It was cold wintry weather outside and warm and cosy inside with the views stretching for miles. We had 2 blissful weeks and could easily have stayed longer.

The house is luxuriously set up with a great kitchen, plenty of pots, plates and glassware, comfy dining chairs, the great fire, lots of space and thoughtful extras like interesting cookbooks.

And then there was the garden which was just as impressive as the house! I loved wandering through the paths with a cuppa, finding favourite spots.

We'd love to come back again, summer or winter the property is beautiful.
