Inverloch - Fast Facts

Quiet seaside resort which was once an important port.
Inverloch, a Gaelic word meaning 'entrance to a lake', is a popular seaside holiday spot at the mouth of Anderson Inlet, 143 km south-east of Melbourne and 9 m above sea level. Ancient middens discovered in the area are testimony to the seafood diet of the Bunarong Aborigines who once occupied this stretch of the coast. The Bonkoolawools are also thought to have hunted in the region.
