New to town and looking for some ideas on how to spend your weekend? We can help!
Over the past couple of weeks, we've featured a few posts on our socials highlighting some of our favourite destinations, both within and beyond Inverloch.
Naturally, we're very biased and we think this little slice of Bass Coast is one of the best places you could visit, and we want to make sure all the lovely visitors to our town have the right info under their belt to put their best foot forward when exploring the South Gippsland region.
To make things nice and easy, and to save you scrolling back through our feed to find the highlights, we've popped all our hints and tips and suggestions here, ready for tourists and locals alike to get out and spend a day, a weekend or a week finding the best we have to offer.
If you popped into the store and asked us for dinner recommendations or hiking suggestions or hot shopping spots to visit, we'd happily share some of our favourites. So we thought it was only fair to give our online visitors the same opportunity! Below is a list of ideas, by no means exhaustive or exclusive - consider it a jumping off point to start your adventure...
One of our favourite scenic drives is the looping, curling road from Invy to Cape Paterson. Winding through the Yallock-Bulluk Marine & Coastal Park, the area is home to many Aboriginal cultural heritage sites and has been named after the Yallock-Bulluk clan of the Bunurong people. Pick a couple of beaches to visit along the way, and enjoy the spectacular scenery from lookouts or on the sand. Our favourites are Eagles Nest and Shack Bay, but maybe you'll love the Oaks instead?
If you're hungry, grab lunch from Lime & Co in the centre of town and head to a grassy spot in the Glade, or if you've got little people in tow, make a beeline for Rainbow Park. If you feel like dining in, Bluette has a beautiful garden to while away a morning or afternoon with a coffee and a good book (purchased from Paperplay Inverloch who stock the best selection of reading material for all kinds of busy minds).
There's plenty of other shopping options in town too, and we'd wager there's something to keep nearly every member of the family happy. Lollies, fishing gear, homewares, clothing, surf stuff, eco products, beauty and plenty of food to take home and enjoy!
As the afternoon heads towards evening, settle in for a drink at Dirty Three Wines - a bottle of All the Dirts is never a bad idea, or maybe try a tasting flight if you're feeling indecisive! And it's also a great spot to try a glass of the lovely Loch Gin, too.
And finally, dinner - perch up at the Invy Espy if you're after pub grub and chippies, or journey up A'Beckett to Tomo's Japanese for a special meal with friends. The burgers at the Espy are always great value, and if you do make it to Tomo, don't leave without trying the Amiyaki beef. It's mouth-wateringly good!
There's so many more wonderful options in Inverloch, and we've barely scratched the surface here, but hopefully it's sparked something for you, and you're excited for the discoveries ahead.
