Venus Bay

The seaside township of Venus Bay, Gippsland, is situated on the peninsula separating Anderson Inlet from Venus Bay, about 175 km south-east of Melbourne. The bay, after which the township takes its name, is thought to have been named after Venus, the morning or evening star, by George Bass on his coastal voyage of discovery in 1798. Venus Bay is on Bass Strait, and Anderson Inlet is like an inland bay, fed by the Tarwin River on its east and emptying into Venus Bay on its west.
