There is much to see and do on the Venus Bay peninsula in addition to our wonderful beach.



Whatever you angling preference you will find it on the Venus Bay peninsula.

River fishing (from bank or platform)

Inlet fishing

Surf fishing

The Venus Bay pier and boat launching ramp is located at the end of Fishermans Road. In addition there is another boat launching ramp at Tarwin Lower at the western end of town.

The Venus Bay Angling Club has been in existence for over 25 years. Click here to visit the Venus Bay Angling Club site.

Rod Bending's World of Fishing & Beach Stuff is a specialist fishing shop situated in Jupiter Boulevard.

Doyles Road Inlet beach

A perfect place to 'get away' from it all. Walk along the beach or along the flat track just before the picnic table. On days of strong winds at the surf beach this spot provides a quiet calm place to rest.


Kangaroo lookout

On Lees Road in the second estate is a lookout which provides view across to Anderson Inlet.

Point Smythe State Park

Situated at the tip of the Venus Bay peninsula the park contains numerous walks through a variety of native flora.



Venus Bay has a number of playgrounds for the enjoyment of younger visitors.


World's longest table

Situated on the river bank at the western end of the Tarwin Lower township is what is claimed to be the world's longest picnic table.

Bike path

The Tarwin Lower - Venus Bay Association is delighted that after a fifteen year campaign we finally have an off road bike path between Venus Bay and Tarwin  Lower.

Tarwin Lower end is just past the end of town at the side of the Tarwin River whilst at the Venus Bay end the path starts adjacent to the entrance to town.

Our aim is to extend the path into the Tarwin Lower township and to the Venus Bay beach, along with linking it to the Venus Bay second estate.
