Port Welshpool is a small and fairly quiet town on the shores of Corner Inlet with views of Wilsons Promontory.
The slightly larger township of Welshpool lies 6 kilometers inland on the South Gippsland Highway between Foster and Yarram, and there are plans for a walking track to join the two towns by the end of 2009.
Port Welshpool itself is home to the historic Long Jetty and the Seadays Festival held in January each year. Predominantly a fishing village with its own commercial fishing port, it also attracts some holiday makers that enjoy a more peaceful family waterside holiday at a cheaper price than most.
The two caravan parks in the town are generally quite full over the warmer months and the local pub, takeaway cafe/general store/bait shop, small museum, playground and wharf with boat ramps provide most of the facilities for the town.
The beach is safe for children to play and swim as it sits in the bay with only gentle waves washing on the shore. The well constructed playground and barbecue area is situated in easy reach right next to the water and across the road from the pub and general store and cafe.
