Fish off the Wharf.

The various jettys around the Port Albert Wharf provide prime real estate for land-based fishing. Rutters Jetty has been known to hook large flathead, along with Whiting, Garfish and Leatherjackets.

Swimming & Kayaking

Lets be honest, the weather at Port Albert can be a bit fresh. However, in summer, the small sand beach near the water tower provides the perfect location for kids to swim, jump off the jetty or even kayak.

 

If the water isn't quite right for a swim, grab some fish and chips, burgers, coffee or cold drink and sit at the picnic tables along the wharf and enjoy the sunshine watching the boats.

Wildlife

Take your time and savour the best of Gippsland’s natural wonders on two feet. Walk under giant ferns in ancient rainforests, stand under magnificent waterfalls, and look out over the ocean from wind-swept beaches and ports.

Each night in Port Albert, you can see the families of Kangaroos and Wallabies feeding in the paddocks behind the houses.
