Located in: Port Welshpool
Port Welshpool is a hidden gem and undiscovered by many as it is off the main road.
Ideal spot for a family holiday. A major attraction in the area is the fully restored and historic Port Welshpool Long Jetty...a must visit and family friendly jetty and beach surrounds. You can be as busy as you wish or relaxed as you may need:) are so many things to do and see for adults and kids alike including great fishing, lovely beaches as well as bike tracks or if you like to walk or area is for all to enjoy and is so unspoilt in comparison to may areas within easy reach of Melbourne. Come stay and enjoy at a price we have set so a break is affordable to all -all we ask is that you treat the house as your won in return and clean on departure. Many thanks!

The house has beautiful wooden cathedral ceilings with delightful character. A reverse cycle air conditioner for summer and winter comfort and great heating for those cosy winter nights and there is also a wood heater (wood not provided now as it would weirdly "disappear" when we did)

We also now have FREE WIFI and FOXTEL available
Two good size bedrooms one with a comfy double bed (including an LCD TV in the main bedroom) and the other with a double bed with a single bunk above so comfortably sleeps 5.

There is a large lounge / open living plan with kitchen with absolutely everything you will need along with microwave, Aldi Coffee maker and lots of bench space and walk in pantry. There is a 42" HD LCD TV along with the Foxtel Entertainment Package for your enjoyment which includes 9 Sports Channels for the boys (including Fox Sports) and a Blu Ray DVD player with some DVDs in the cabinet.

Along 2 full sides of the house is a delightful covered verandah that gets lots of sun and shade (not to mention the peaceful outlook lovely to view the native birds) -a lovely area to have breakie or have a drink or BBQ in the eve- there is a gas BBQ available.

We have Monopoly, Scrabble and cards to play which we often do!! If you have a boat there is lots of room on the large easily accessible corner block with the hotel, store, beach and jetty just 2 or so minutes walk away. – So bring the kids fishing rods

PETS: Also please note we do not allow pets after three VERY bad experiences. We used to welcome the family pet as we have animals ourselves, but many dollars later with repairs we have had to make due to irresponsible people we have now changed our policy - apologies to all the responsible pet owners out there.

The Port and surrounds
Port Welshpool is a lovely drive of about 90 minutes from Cranbourne once you hit the Sth Gippsland Highway and is in an undiscovered "peaceful paradise" just a short drive from beautiful and unspoilt Wilsons Prom.
We own our lovely "home away from home" (well the bank does) and instead of tenanting it we decided to share our little paradise with likeminded people who will enjoy this lovely area as much as we do. "The Port" is a very historic part of Victoria and has an all weather/ all tide boat ramp (1 minute drive from the house) with great fishing from the jetty or the wharf and also very safe swimming and paddling from the lovely sandy beach.

The Port is also the entrance to the Prom either by boat or by a short drive so you can explore at will or just relax and there are also MANY other beautiful attractions in the area. There is a great General Store which has all your needs or supermarkets 20 minutes away in Foster or Yarram.
Fishing is hugely popular in the area. Wilsons Promontory National Park and the islands of Corner Inlet can be reached by launch or sailboat from the port. There is a launching ramp and boats can be hired locally. Hog deer, an endangered species in their native Asia, have been introduced into a State game reserve on Snake Island, in order to bolster their numbers.

The Port Welshpool Museum, open daily, features marine displays and an unusual assortment of maritime curios. The house, built in 1881, was one of the first substantial dwellings to be constructed at Port Welshpool. The builder, J. Avery, had to walk 21 miles from Port Albert every Monday, and returned by foot each weekend. It is thought to be one of the oldest buildings in the shire of South Gippsland. On the lawn is the fishing boat, the Janet Isles, which was used by the house's owners, the Smith family, for several generations.

Barry Beach, a few kilometers west, is a supply base for the oil rigs of Bass Strait. Steel platforms are constructed here and towed into the strait, where piles are driven through the hollow legs and a deck is welded on. An observation area, overlooking the terminal, has been organised.

The area was reputedly named after jack-of-all-trades, John Baragwanath, who owned land at the mouth of the Agnes River. Skilled at ironwork, photography, and surveying, he manufactured his own camera and telescope and assisted the locals in the guises of an informal doctor, a legal counselor, and a bush dentist - always carrying a set of forceps with which to yank out troublesome teeth.
Harold Lasseter - the man who made and prompted numerous expeditions to central Australia by claiming that a mother lode of gold, known as Lasseter's Reef, was there to be mined - lived in the area for his last thirty years. He died returning from one of his own trips in about 1931

The township of Welshpool, a few kilometers to the north, relies upon the dairy and wool industries. 9 km north-west of Welshpool you can visit one of the highest waterfalls in Victoria at the Agnes Falls Reserve, where the river plunges 60 m over the gorge. The damming of the river above the falls ensures the water supply Welshpool and other local towns. Walking tracks, picnic and barbecue facilities are available. To get there, head west along the highway and turn off at Slades Hill Road, near the school. The route is signposted. Return via Toora for maximum scenic value.
