Inverloch Activities & Attractions

Cruises/Flights/Tours

Inverloch Charters and Boat Hire conduct sightseeing/fishing tours of Anderson Inlet aboard the 36 foot 20 seat R.V. Tyrrell. The cruise allows you to take in the beauty of Anderson Inlet, which in places is amazingly shallow and has often been described as the most dynamic estuary in Victoria. Low tide sees the inlets sandy bottom providing a veritable banquet for the many species of water birds, whilst the Tarwin River continues to flow through to the sand bar forming a barrier to the open waters of Bass Strait.

Night Fishing
Night Fishing
Night fishing for gummy shark requires extensive preparation.
During daylight hours, select the hole or gutter you choose to fish and leave markers in the sand dunes so as to identify it at night. Berly will help to attract schools of bait fish andcreate crab activity which in turn will induce bottom feeders.A running sinker rig weighted by a 4 ounce sinker with a 700-1000cm leader with 6/0 suicide hook is ideal. Best baits are bonito fillets
cut into long strips, octopus legs, whole pilchards, US squid and fresh fish fillets.
