Just 90 minutes' drive from Melbourne along the Monash Freeway and South Gippsland Highway and you're here.
Our beautiful coastline alternates between rugged cliffs and endless beaches. Explore fishing villages and holiday towns which bustle during warmer months and exude an away-from-it-all ambience at other times. If you go further inland you'll find quaint towns, small wineries and local producers proud of their products and more than happy to show you around. You can experience all this on long summer days - ideal for enjoying a lazy day at the beach, or rugged winters - perfect for indoor indulgence - all within an easy drive from Melbourne.
