Port Albert (between Yarram and Welshpool on the South Gippsland Highway in Victoria) is one of those places with charm and historical significance.
It is just being discovered as a place to buy reasonably priced seaside units and villas.
Several weeks ago when I took this photograph, the film crew from the travel show “Getaway” were doing a feature on the area. Port Alberts’ popularity is lightly to grow even more as a result.
The foreshore is being redeveloped too. It already has an award winning fish and chips shop right on the waterfront, and the owners have just opened a bistro/cafe/restaurant in the beautiful new building next door.
But you’ll ind more information and great photographs at http://south-gippsland.com/portalbert.htm, and by the way, the Ned Kelly mailbox isn’t the only quirky thing in the area…there’s lots of surprises to be had in South Gippsland.
