On this page, you’ll find things to do in Loch
Ever wondered what there is to do to in a small town population south of a thousand people, with no major shopping centre, no cinema? Well, Loch Village as it all and in panoramic views, stunning place of relaxation, with plenty of things to do. There are no legends of Loch Ness Monsters here but more than enough things to fill a weekend or more!
History of Loch
Historic Loch pioneered in the late 1800’s appropriately and affectionately known as the Garden Village. The name hitting the high notes, landscaped areas perfect for laying down on and watching the clouds roll by. Or sit in a peaceful place to watch the sunset in hills of South Gippsland. To draw in the scents of the flora all around.
Loch Village is located about 90 minutes from Victoria’s capital city, Melbourne.
Loch has experienced a boom and most people are attributing this to the South Gippsland Hwy bypassing Loch. Other towns have been bypassed and not experiencing the same boom.
Personally, I am actually more inclined to attribute it to the wonderful Loch Community Development Association. It is evident the LCDA is working very hard at creating a community.
I’d liken it to the fictional town of Stars Hollow in the fact they are creating town activities. In a truly Australian setting. Who else would think of a town-on-sale, that the whole town participates in? The town-on-sale is essentially a garage sale.
Fishing in Loch
Nature and creatures
Is located at Sunnyside park, just as you enter the town, you can burn some energy in the skate bowl and enjoy views of the rest of Loch.

Try to spy the places on the spindle:
Wonderful wineries, sporting local wines, and spectacular views – such as The Gurdies Winery, right on the water.
Philip Island – I don’t want to sensationalise – but Oprah went there and saw the penguins. There is plenty more there to do, it gets really busy in summer as it is a very popular destination.
Kilcunda and Powlett River, 54 km, will take about 37 minutes to drive, and an ideal spot for some saltwater fishing opportunities.
Mt. Baw Baw is on this Spindle and is close (enough) to Walhalla and surrounding areas for it to be worth a mention even though it is 137.2 km from Loch Victoria.
