Close by are Wonthaggi , with its shops and coal-mine. (Our kids love to ride the traffic-free trail there and get an ice-cream), endless beaches that are good for surfing waves or wind, or paddle with the kids, or fish, visit the dinosaur fossil site, or just be the only one, even on busy days...
Along the coast there are many beautiful walks - and the bunurong coastal drive offers amazing views.
Inverloch and Wonthaggi have various shops for fun or all your needs, and Phillip Island, which is only 15 minutes away and offers a variety of activities.
Further away (but not too far) is Wilsons promontory, great for walks and nature experience.
There is a variety of restaurants in Dalyston, Archies Creek, Inverloch and Wonthaggi. Kilcunda has the hotel and general store where we love to have lunch, Have breakfast in the Hicksborough general store or drive to Phillip island where the coastal towns and wineries offer diverse hospitality.
If you love brick-a-brack, or emporiums- Wonthaggi alone has 5 covered markets, that always have hidden treasures.
Olives in the grass is now able to accommodate dogs (not cats) , as long as you are in control, and make sure they don't chew, or chase the cows on the dairy farm. We have stock fences, which won't hold them in.
You can also bring your Horse or Pony, if you accept a treed and bushy paddock, with water. The paddock is well fenced, but has no electric fencing. Use of the paddock is entirely at your own risk.
