French Island
French Island
French Island VIC 3921
Close to Melbourne, but in many ways worlds apart, French Island which is twice the size of Phillip Island two thirds being National Park is only 65 kilometers from Melbourne, yet is still a mystery to many Victorians who know little - if anything - about this intriguing Western Port island.
It is the only unincorporated territory in Victoria, meaning no shire, no rates, no access, except by boat. It has a permanent population of about 100 people who are mostly into farming and/or tourism. The French Island people are self regulating, have dirt roads and take life a little slower.
Inter Island Ferries travel to French Island from Stony Point and Phillip Island.
