Your guide to Mallacoota

All About Mallacoota

Mallacoota is a small coastal town in the East Gippsland region of Victoria and is the last official township on the east coast before the border with New South Wales. The town is a quiet inlet blessed with sandy beaches, lakes, rivers, forests, and stunning ocean clifftops. It is surrounded by the Croajingolong National Park, which spans over 100 kilometres along the region's Wilderness Coast — offering many places to boat, fish, walk, swim, and explore.

Just off the coast of Mallacoota you’ll find Gabo Island, which is home to the second tallest lighthouse in Australia and Victoria’s single active beacon. Standing at 47-metres high, it was built in 1862 from the island’s distinctive pink granite. You can make the journey to the top of the lighthouse to take in the spectacular views of the ocean and surrounding area. Gabo Island is also home to major colonies of seabirds, including penguins.

The best time to stay in a holiday rental in Mallacoota

Mallacoota’s mild winters and warm summers make it a year-round destination. If there was a best time to visit, it would probably be in the spring from September to November or autumn from March to May — when the days are warm and the nights are mild. The town is known for its abundance of seafood, including abalone, and hosts the annual Wild Harvest Seafood Festival in September. Summer is also a great time to be in Mallacoota to enjoy all the water activities on offer. It can get hot from December to February, so be prepared with sunscreen and a hat. The summer market held in The Lion’s Park offers sweet treats, organic veggies, and locally made goods. Whenever you decide to go, there is a range of accommodation in Mallacoota to suit various budgets.

Top things to do in Mallacoota

Croajingolong National Park

Take one of the many walking trails through the Croajingolong National Park and enjoy the untouched beauty and natural landscapes. The park has been recognised as a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve — and is home to more than 1,500 plant species and a diverse range of animal life, including more than 300 species of birds, as well kangaroos, koalas, and many other native Australian species.

Gabo Island

Take the short boat ride off the coast of Mallacoota to Gabo Island. The most prominent landmark is the Island’s lighthouse, which you can climb to experience panoramic views of the coastline. Discover the island on foot and explore its magnificent landscapes and bays. Walk by historical ruins, including the wrecks of the Monument City — one of many ships that sank near the island in 1853.

Betka Beach

Spend a day on one of the most beautiful beaches in Victoria. Betka beach is a great place for swimming, and the calmer waters make it ideal for canoeing and kayaking. The Mallacoota coastal loop walking track is a great way to get here, and make sure you stay long enough to witness a magical sunset.
