Connecting the mainland to Wilsons Promontory, the small town of Yanakie is in a bucolic rural location overlooking rolling south Gippsland farmlands.
The beaches at Corner Inlet and Shallow Inlet – on either side of the peninsula – are only a few minutes drive from Yanakie. In addition to being top fishing spots, the beaches are great for swimming, bird watching, bush walking, photography or simply admiring the unspoilt spectacular scenery of this southern coast area.
Stop in for a relaxing overnight stay at a B&B, self-contained cottage or caravan park before or after visiting Wilsons Promontory. Take advantage of the licensed general store to stock up on supplies.
Yanakie is approximately 188 kilometres from Melbourne, or about two-and-a-half hours along the M1 and the South Gippsland Highway.
