Surburb overview

Australia has a wealth of surfing spots throughout the country, but none is more fitting for the nervous beginner than Inverloch. The coastal town is known for the Anderson Inlet, a shallow estuary home to a sheltered beach where gentle swells roll toward the shore and diminish into sea foam. When Inverloch tides are low, the mudflats underneath the inlet are exposed. It’s the best time to go for a walk along the secluded beach and examine its minute but diverse marine life.
