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.

Beautiful Inside and Out

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful property inside and out. Loved the massive kitchen and bench space and the Yamaha system. The fireplace gave the place a cozy feel during the night. Loved sitting outside on the deck with a cup of coffee each morning enjoying the views. The kids absolutely loved walking up and down the garden paths. Kirsty was such a pleasure to deal with and always so responsive. Will definitely be back next time we think of staying in Venus Bay or The Prom. No hesitation in recommending this place to our family and friends.

Beautiful relaxing haven-beautiful inside and out

  • 5 of 5

We have just spent a very relaxing long weekend at Sunrise. The home is beautifully renovated - with excellent quality appliances. Much thought and care has been put into providing a luxurious place to stay. The views are just breath-taking through the huge kitchen window, and from anywhere outside. The outdoor entertaining area and facilities were amazing - made it such an enjoyable and memorable stay. Wandering through the beautifully landscaped garden just made the whole experience a real joy - a lovely place to escape and relax.

We will definitely be back - Thank you Kirsty for opening up your beautiful home so that we could enjoy the experience of this amazing home, garden and location.

Great Views!!

My husband and I stayed here the night of our wedding and a few days afterwards. It was a great experience as the views were exceptional, it had a nice modern feel and the outdoor bbq area was fantastic. Very quiet and relaxing. We plan to go back.

Sunrise was perfect for every member of our family. For mum my biggest decision each day was which seat to have my breakfast on and when to take the lovely stroll to beautiful beach no. 2, for the kids they loved playing hide and seek in the garden, for the dog she loved the football field to run and catch the ball and for dad he loved never having to move the car with beach and shops all within easy walking distance. Sunrise is as impressive as the pictures suggest and the cleanliness, views, peace, enormous deck and plentiful quality supplies gave us a week of utter bliss. Thank you Kirsty, this is now our house of choice in beautiful Venus bay

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.
