The Church House

Fish Creek Village and Surrounds

Settled in 1886, the quaint Fish Creek Township and surrounds is home to an artistic enclave that belies its small population. Originally a rail stop on the South Gippsland line, Fish Creek is also home to the iconic Fish Creek Hotel. The gorgeous Art Deco pub was built in 1939 and has been lovingly maintained

 Sandy Point is small coastal community situated at the entrance of a narrow peninsula that fronts both Waratah Bay and Shallow Inlet with its adjacent wetlands.

Sandy Point Road leads to Shallow Inlet where the compacted sand at the end of the road allows visitors to drive their vehicles right out onto the beach and close to the water’s edge. Shallow Inlet is popular with windsurfers and sailing’s world speed record was set here. Spectacular views across Shallow Inlet and down to Wilsons Promontory can be enjoyed by climbing the sand dunes and enjoying breathtaking views in all directions

Shallow Inlet Coastal Marine Park,Drive you car onto the hard beach at low tide

Waratah Bay is located at the northern end of the bay which the town is named after, and a few minutes drive west of Sandy Point which also fronts the same bay. Waratah Bay is the place to go for a quiet, secluded beach front. There are no shops in the town. The beaches at Waratah Bay are popular with surfers and swimmers, offering great expanses of sandy coastline with the attractive backdrop of mountain peaks along Wilsons Promontory’s west coast in the distance.

Walkerville and the Cape Liptrap coast

you can take several days exploring the beaches and attractions

– The area surrounding Walkerville is renowned for its rock formations. There is a report which describes them as, “one of the most interesting and complex geological sequences in Victoria”.From 1875 through the early 1900’s, the Lime Industry employed up to 80 people, until the hills were quarried-out. The remains give us an indication of the power of the sea as well as an interesting place to explore.At the end of a no-through road, to the south Walkerville beach are the the burnt out lime kilns left over from past activity and are incredible to explore.

There is a historic cemetery and the Cape Liptrap lighthouse  at the south-east most tip of Victoria, is a must-see experience. Take a walk around Point Smythe, Waratah Bay or Andersons Inlet. Or do the short Limeburners Walk or the 1.2 kilometer Overlook Walk. See the historic Cemetery,

go swimming, fishing or boating, or just spend an afternoon exploring the rock pools and the remains of the lime kilns.
