From country to coast and everything in between, venturing out from Parklands you can do just about anything you like. The Bass Coast is renowned for its abundance of incredible experiences on offer.

If the beach and water sports are what you’re all about, you will be beyond impressed with the stunning beaches and world-class surf to be explored. Fishing, paddleboarding, snorkelling and sailing — the Bass Coast has it all.

Bushwalks, coastal trails and bike tracks are plentiful around here too, offering a great opportunity to get up close and personal with the local flora and fauna. Spot koalas, wombats and kangaroos in the wild, or visit one of the Bass Coast’s animal parks.

Indulge in fine wine and gourmet meals in one of the many wineries, breweries and eateries across the region. The Bass Coast’s beautiful green pastures are put to good use growing exceptional quality produce that never disappoints.

Whether you’re up for day trips or want to head out on a longer journey, you’ll never run out of adventures on the Bass Coast.
