Bunurong Coast Drive – Cape Paterson to Inverloch

Take a 14km drive up Bunurong Coastal Drive – a mini version of the famed Great Ocean Road. On offer are spectacular views of untouched beaches and natural attractions alongside the Bass Strait. Don’t forget your camera! With several stops along the way, you could easily spend a few hours here exploring Eagle’s Nest, Shack Bay and the best that nature has to offer.


Once in Inverloch, you can stop off for some brunch and a coffee (we highly recommend The Bayside Lady) along the main area of this seaside town. Or for those looking to indulge in some heavenly wine and cheese, you can’t go past Dirty Three Wines, a unique tasting room just outside the town with its celebrated wine from the Gippsland region.

Just a short walking distance from the main street of Inverloch you’ll find Inverloch Surf Beach, a perfect spot for kids to explore. Take a quick dip, or maybe catch some waves – it’s a great spot for beginners!

Wilsons Promontory Park

Looking to explore more of the outdoors? Take the road further east and you’ll end up at the much-loved Wilsons Promontory National Park – the southernmost point of mainland Australia. ‘The Prom’ offers scenic trails and is home to an abundance of wildlife including kangaroos, emus, wombats, echidnas and rosellas. Visiting in spring brings you spectacular displays of wildflowers including orchids, wattle, heathland and other species.

Those wanting a challenge can venture onto Mt Oberon Summit Walk which offers breath-taking panoramic views of the coast and offshore islands of the southern tip. Starting and finishing at the Telegraph Saddle car park, it’s a 2 to 3-hour return hike, suitable for those with some bushwalking experience.

TIP: Your Cape Patterson holiday isn’t complete without catching the sunset across Bass Strait.
