Where Is Waratah Bay?

Waratah Bay is a small township on the South Eastern coast of Australia between Sandy Point and Walkerville and only a short drive to Wilsons Promontory National Park.

The Beach

Beaches in most South Gippsland coastal towns are sandy, clean and peaceful. This one is used in both winter and summer months for horse riding, swimming, surfing, body boarding, boating, whale watching and the occasional kite surfing (though the beach further north at shallow inlet in Sandy Point tend to provide more suitable conditions. Small amounts of seaweed wash up on the beach here but I’ve not known it to ever be a bother as it adds to the naturalness and general appeal of the area.

Activities In And Around Waratah Bay

Like most coastal towns in South Gippsland, this one also has beautiful and safe beaches for swimming, beach fishing, body boarding and surfing. Only a short drive away are the historic Walkerville Lime Kilns, Art and Craft Studios and several good wineries with the best windsurfing to be found only minutes down the road at Shallow Inlet.

Boating And Supplies

Boat ramps are located close-by at Yanakie, Waratah Bay, Walkerville and Shallow Inlet if you prefer to fish in the bay. Waratah Bay also has a Caravan Park and Kiosk to supply your basic needs but most people would travel the 20 minutes drive to Foster or Fish Creek for groceries, bottleshops, restaurants, coffee shops, cafes, garages, beauty therapy, chemists, medical and other goods and services.
