Stay a night in the historic lighthouse keeper’s cottage and join a tour of the historic lighthouse precinct. Learn about life in this remote part of the world and climb the spiral staircase of the light station to be rewarded by stunning windswept coastal views.
Trade the comfort of the cottage for a shady campsite at Thurra River. Explore the isolated stretch of coast, visible through pockets of coastal woodlands, the tannin tinted Thurra River, perfect for a mid-summer swim, and the largest sand dunes in Victoria, the Thurra River Dunes. Watch for decorated native birds such as the Laughing Kookaburra, Pied Currawong and occasional White-bellied Sea Eagle circling above.
Get back to basics at secluded campsites nestled on the banks of Tamboon Inlet. Only accessible by boat and with its exceptional year-round fishing opportunities, the inlet draws anglers from across the state. Catch bream in the cool of winter and throughout the warmer months; tailor, flathead, salmon and perch.
