Windsurfing & Kitesurfing at Inverloch
Inverloch is located 145 km SE of Melbourne on the South Gippsland Hwy.
It is a popular tourist destination in the warmer months for Melbournites and Gippslanders.
But more importantly, Inverloch has some of the best windsurfing & kitesurfing in Victoria and Australia.
Inverloch is blessed with an incredible inlet called Anderson’s Inlet, perfect for flat-water-blasting, as well as fabulous surf beaches which are also great for wave sailing.
Combine this with regular strong winds and this is a place all windsurfers & kitesurfers should visit.
Inverloch Sailing Spots
Inverloch has several great launching areas which cover almost every wind direction and tidal condition.
The Inverloch rotunda launching area is one of the most popular spots for flatwater windsurfing in a SW, S and SE breeze. It is most ideal when the tide is on the rise in a SW breeze otherwise it gets bumpy with wind against tide.
Located further up the inlet about 15 mins from town, Area 45 at Mahers Landing is also a very popular spot . It works in a SE, S, E, W, WSW, NW breeze and is great for beginners and flat-water-blasting.
The Anglers Club is the perfect spot for learning to windsurf with shallow water and plenty of sand bars to rest on.
For wave sailors, launch near Ozone Street to access the Inverloch Surf Beach.
The best place for kitesurfing at Inverloch is the Anglers Club as there is plenty of room (particularly at low tide) to rig and launch from the sandy beach. This is also the perfect spot for beginners and improvers as the water is mostly shallow with plenty of spots to stop and start.

Accommodation in Inverloch
Inverloch is a small regional holiday town and doesn't have any large resort-style properties (yet) however there are lots of holiday homes available for rent. There are also a good number of pet friendly properties here.
There is a BIG 4 holiday park located right on Andersons Inlet at the next to the Anglers Club launching area that offers camp sites & cabins. Unfortunately none of the camping parks allow dogs so you will need to rent a pet-friendly house or apartment if you want to take your dog along.
The town is pretty spread-out and if you think you might want to frequent the pub or some of the lovely little restaurants in town it is worth finding a place within walking distance to the town.
