Sandy Point is an idyllic small coastal village two hours’ drive south east of Melbourne.
Located at the northern end of Wilsons Promontory National Park and fronting both the magnificent surf beach of Waratah Bay and the water sports mecca of Shallow Inlet, Sandy Point is a perfect and accessible base for exploring the natural attractions in the area.
Sandy Point has a permanent population of just over 270 people, with a great many holiday homes and rental properties occupied at weekends and over holiday times swelling the population at times to several thousand.
It is set back unobtrusively behind the dunes, with multiple tracks through to the surf beach. Its commercial centre on Beach Parade, opposite the main access path to the Surf Life Saving Club and beach, features a well-stocked general store, café, mini golf course, a caravan park and a real estate office. There are also tennis courts, two playparks, a half basketball court, and several barbecue facilities.
Immediately behind lies the Community Centre, the focus of many events during the course of the year including music nights, the Foodies Market, Easter Art Show and weddings and birthdays.
